Faculty Brandon Browne, Lucy Kerhoulas, Marissa Ramsier, Tessa Pitre, Multiple Departments

During each Spring semester, the HSU Emeritus & Retired Faculty Association issues a Call for Applications for cash awards to support the professional development of junior faculty—lecturers and tenure track—who have demonstrated outstanding promise. This year’s winners of this award are:

Brandon Browne, Associate Professor of Geology, is doing research on cone volcanoes in California’s Sierra Nevada. He will use his award to cover the cost of gathering and chemically analyzing rock samples. An undergraduate student will use these samples to write his undergraduate thesis and they will also form a part of a grant proposal that Brown is submitting to the National Science Foundation.

Lucy Kerhoulas, Assistant Professor in the Forestry and Wildland Resources Department. She is studying the Sonoma tree vole at the Schatz Tree Farm in Maple Creek. She will use her award for canopy research equipment—for special harnesses and ropes that will enable her to climb the Douglas fir trees where these small mammals live.

Marissa Ramsier, Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology, who will use her award to purchase materials for a bioarchaeology project in Poland. The aim of the project is to learn more about the diet, migration, and health in an early Medieval Prussian population in Poland. She will use her funds to purchase disposable materials and for the processing of isotope samples.

Tessa Pitre, lecturer in two departments: English and Critical Race, Gender & Sexuality Studies. She received an award to enable her to present a paper at the American Educational Research Association in San Antonio.
