Rachel is following in the footsteps of three other Devos Lab members by making the finals of the UGA Graduate School 3-minute thesis (3-MT) competition.  Her strong performance also earned her a place in the finals of the ASPB 3-MT competition.

Hallie successfully defended her dissertation entitled 'Identifying genetic factors associated with finger millet blast resistance' on March 25th.  Congratulations, and all the best in the next stage of your career!

Hallie Wright, the 2024 winner of the oral/poster competition for graduate students in the CSSA C7 division, competed against the winners of the other divisions for the top spot.  I am very proud to report that Hallie took first place.

Hallie Wright and Shreena Pradhan placed first and third, respectively in the '5 min oral + poster' competition in the C07 Division at the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Crop Science Society of America in Baltimore, repeating their excellent performance at last year's CSSA meeting.
