Congratulations to EES Ph.D. Candidate Kat Turk for receiving a 2023-2024 Fulbright Study/Research Award to Germany and the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) research grant.

With these awards, Kat plans to continue her experimental work on Ediacaran-Cambrian actuopaleontology in collaboration with the Department of Marine Research at Senckenberg am Meer in Wilhelmshaven, Germany. Her project title is: “Lighting the fuse of the Cambrian explosion: An actuopaleontological approach”
