Two recent COSAM graduates were among six Auburn University graduates to receive a 2015 Master's Thesis Award.

Xia Li, who graduated in August 2015 with a master's degree in geography, presented "Impact of Decreased Wetlands on Microclimate of Kolkata, India." Her thesis committee included faculty members Chandana Mitra, Luke Marzen and Li Dong. Li is currently working as a volunteer for the Department of Geosciences while seeking a full-time job opportunity.

Annelise Mowry, who graduated in August 2015 with a master's degree in biological sciences, presented "Energetic Tradeoffs Between Reproduction and Longevity in the House Mouse." Her thesis committee consisted of faculty members Wendy Hood, Andreas Kavazis and Geoffrey Hill. Mowry is currently looking for job opportunities in the Atlanta area. 

The Master’s Thesis Awards recognize the scholarship of master’s students whose theses make an unusually significant contribution to their respective disciplines. Auburn’s colleges and schools nominate students for the awards, and an award committee named by the Graduate School selects the winners for the two categories. Award winners receive an honorarium of $250 and a certificate, which is presented at the Graduate School’s annual awards ceremony each spring.
