Hiram College alumna Tricia Bohls (‘15) received the Dean’s Award for Best Oral Presentation at the University of California, Davis, 2016 Interdisciplinary Graduate and Professional Student Symposium. She began a Ph.D. program in the Department of Entomology and Nematology in August 2015 to study the effects of biopesticides on European honey bees.
While at Hiram, Bohls conducted stream and butterfly research when she served in the lab group of Jennifer Clark, Ph.D., assistant professor of biology, and squirrel behavior research with Tom Koehnle, Ph.D., associate professor of biology.
“Tricia worked extensively on research projects at the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station and has been recognized for her excellence in her current graduate program,” Clark says.
