Date:7/16/2012

MIAMI July 16, 2012 The University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science today announced the recipients of the 2012-2013 Alumni Awards. The grantees were selected by a team of three alumni and a student representative, which disbursed more than $11,000 in funds.

"We received 30 applications from every division of the Rosenstiel School from marine biology to meteorology," said Laura Bracken Chaibongsai, Alumni & Outreach Manager for the Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science. "The projects were all very deserving. We selected ones that demonstrated the greatest potential for a broad impact, both on the student's academic career and on the scientific community."

Christine Beggs

Beggs graduated with Honors from Goucher College in 2010 with a BS in Biology. Presently, she is pursuing a Master's in Marine Conservation, and will use the Award to fund her internship at the Isabela Oceanographic Institute in the Galapagos. She will utilize her marine conservation media site, ProjectBlueHope.com to launch innovative online crowdfunding campaigns for local environmental projects.

Katinka Bellomo

Bellomo graduated from Universita' di Torino (Italy) with a BS and MS in Physics. She is currently working with Dr. Amy Clement to investigate the role of cloud radiative forcing on climate variability and change. The Alumni Award will support a two-month internship at the prestigious Max-Planck Institute in Germany, where she will use their IPCC coupled ocean-atmosphere model to run decadal prediction experiments.

Dominique Lazarre

Lazarre graduated from Eckerd College with a BS in Marine Science (Biology) and Environmental Studies. Her doctoral research is focused on understanding the dynamics that have allowed invasive Indo-Pacific lionfish to spread throughout the Western Atlantic and Caribbean, as well as their impacts on local fish communities. She plans to use the f
