Jeffrey Kane - NAU ARCS Scholar

Jeffrey received his B.S. in Environmental Science from Plattsburgh State University and His M.S in Forestry from Humboldt State University.  His research focuses on the patterns and processes of tree mortality in high elevation mixed-conifer forests of northern Arizona. Through the use of dendrochronological methods and stable isotope analysis he will develop models of tree mortality that will improve our understanding of the biotic and abiotic factors that influence growth and mortality in the mixed-conifer forest ecosystem.

Gregory Apker - ASU Spetzler Scholar

Gregory received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University and his M.S. in Bioengineering at Arizona State University. His research investigates the complex interactions of the sensory and motor systems to provide insight into how the brain perceives and relates to the world around us. These insights will be integral to the development of ystems designed to mimic human behavior.

Shannon Fortin - UA Eller Scholar

Shannon received a B.S. in Biochemistry at Arizona State University.  Her research focuses on what causes the tumor cell invasion and resistance to chemotherapy that is descriptive of glioblasoma multiforme (GBM), a form of brain tumor.  She is studying the genetic signature of brain tumors and consequent molecular signaling responsible for tumor invasion.
