Biologist to Use Fulbright Award to Study Abroad

Posted on: May 13, 2019

Jason Fridley, associate professor of biology, has received the Hauts-de-France Regional Award from the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program. For six months next year, he will study the spread of invasive ragweed in the northernmost region of France. “My goal is to develop and test a model of the response to ragweed to continued climate change in the Hauts-de-France region, where the plant is an increasing health concern,” says Fridley, who will collaborate with Guillaume Decocq, a biology professor at the University of Picardie Jules Verne.
