Meranda Aguilar joined the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department in June 2019, and has been working tirelessly with our current graduate students. She coordinated the 2020 EEB graduate student recruitment, inviting our largest numbers of recruits thus far, and successfully admitting our Fall 2020 cohort of 21 outstanding new graduate students. Meranda has been an excellent resource for Graduate Affairs and Instructional matters, in spite of the challenges created by working remotely. She resolves issues seamlessly, and does it with a smile. Thank you for being a strong advocate for our students, Meranda! You are very much appreciated!
