Our long-time employee and student Sonya Bayba graduated this May from the Great Lakes Environmental Science M.A. Program. Sonya has been a wonderful and hardworking laboratory technician at the GLC since 2015. During her time with us, Sonya received several grants, fellowships and scholarships, including a Graduate Assistantship, and an REU summer research grant from the University of Georgia. She graduated from Buffalo State in 2017 with a B.A. in Biology before starting her graduate work. Sonya worked very hard and presented her thesis research at multiple Buffalo State student conferences and at the International Association of Great Lakes Research Conference in 2019. She recently submitted a paper entitled “Dreissena in the Great Lakes: evidence of facilitation in benthic communities across a large depth gradient” to the journal Biological Invasions. Sonya started a new position in October as a Research Assistant - Invasive Species Survey Data Analyst at WNY PRISM. Great job and congratulations, Sonya!
