Students are evalutated on how well they demonstrate the following: Connect the Dots, Discovery Mindset, Commitment to Inclusive Community, Capacity for Leadership, and Ready for What is Next.
About Itzue's research: I am a frog lover and a travel enthusiast who is extremely passionate about my research; searching for frogs allows me to witness breathtaking landscapes and taught me that true passion can take you to happy places. But there is enough frog love for everyone! So I also truly enjoy sharing science and promoting feelings of discovery with all members of society; by combining art with science, I design creative ways to teach, to do outreach and to produce engaging science communication.
Biology undergraduate students Joshua Dawson, Alexis Rodriguez-Pantaleon, and Mollye Zahler were also nominated.
