Ana Maria Bedoya, Biology graduate student in the Olmstead lab, was named The American Society of Plant Taxonomists' 2020 George R. Cooley Award winner.

Each year since 1956, the George R. Cooley Award has been awarded by the ASPT to one of its early-career members for a paper judged to be the best in plant systematics presented the ASPT's annual meeting.  Considered one of the most prestigious early-career recognitions in the plant sciences, the award is named for George R. Cooley, a successful banker who studied plants and worked in conservation in retirement.

Ana won the Cooley Award for her talk entitled: Andean uplift, drainage basin formation, and the evolution of riverweeds (Podostemaceae).
Congratulations, Ana!
