Entomological Society of America names winners of Monsanto student travel and research awards
Date:9/11/2013

.

SANDIPA GAUTAM has a BS in agriculture from Tribhuwan University in Chitwan, Nepal. She obtained her MS in entomology from Oklahoma State University under the mentorship of Dr. George Opit. Her MS research focused on investigating the biology and ecology of stored-product psocids, which are small insects that have emerged to become serious stored-product pests worldwide in the last three decades. Sandipa is currently working on her dissertation entitled "Circumventing ovicidal deficiencies of fumigants during postharvest fumigations" at Oklahoma State University under the mentorship of Drs. George Opit and Spencer Walse. Her research has yielded exciting data on a possible relationship between respiratory structures on the surface of the egg and efficacy of fumigants, and elucidating why eggs of some stored-product insects are tolerant to fumigants. Sandipa's research represents a critical first step in understanding the role that egg morphology plays in efficacy of fumigants and the development of methods that can be used to overcome ovicidal deficiencies of fumigants. Sandipa is active within ESA and has presented results of her research at Branch and national meetings and in the Annals of Entomological Society of America; Journal of Economic Entomology; Environmental Entomology; Entomology, Ornithology, and Herpetology; Fumigants and Pheromones; Proceedings of International Organization for Biological and Integrated Control Integrated Protection of Stored Products; and Proceedings of the International Working Conference on Stored Product Protection. She has won student competition prizes in seven presentations out of 16. She was also the recipient of the 2012 ESA ICE travel award and the 2011 Oklahoma State University Graduate Research Excellence Award.

ROB MORRISON is originally from Mesa, Arizona, and he developed an immense appreciation for the natural world from a young age.
