A huge congratulations to Lena Schallenberg! Lena has just been awarded a prestigious Student Award by the International Society of Limnology.
Lena’s recently completed PhD (Otago University, New Zealand) focused on the tiny (but mighty) picocyanobacteria that form the base of many lake foodwebs. She characterised picocyanobacterial diversity and dynamics from a range of contrasting lake types across New Zealand using epifluorescence microscopy, environmental DNA metabarcoding and genomic techniques.
As part of this award, Lena will present her work at the upcoming SIL2022 conference, in Berlin, Germany.
Well done Lena – we are very proud of you!!
