Female Grad Student is Lead Author of Paper in Science
I’m going to brag a bit, but hopefully also send a message of encouragement to women in the sciences (and grad students in particular). A female grad student here at the University of Hawaii, Mikki Osterloo, was the lead author of a paper that appeared in the 21 March 2008 issue of Science on the discovery of possible chloride salts on Mars. The link is here, although a subscription is required to access the full article. I’m sure Mikki would respond to reprint requests, too!
I hope you’ll join me in celebrating Mikki’s achievement.
