CNES Grads Shine at CAMWS

From our Director of Graduate Studies, Professor Nita Krevans:
Just back from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where our graduate students gave a range of wonderful papers. (I also heard presentations from several former Minnesota students, including Eric Fanning and Tom Kohn, and from Chris Nappa.) For those who were not at the meeting and could not make the practice session, I've appended a list of the student papers and links to the abstracts below. Congratulations to all the presenters; I hope you enjoyed giving your papers as much as I enjoyed hearing them in their official, public versions.
