Meet Biology PhD Student Justin Lesser

UL Grad School -- 09/18/2019

Justin Lesser spent his summer knee-deep in the marshes of Massachusetts, tracking tiny fish called mummichogs. As a Biology PhD student in Dr. Jimmy Nelson’s Ecosystems Lab at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, he studies how coastal erosion affects the eating habits of these abundant little fish, which in turn impacts the survival of larger predatory fish such as bass and flounder.

We spoke with him about the places his research has taken him, and the support he’s received at UL Lafayette.

Meet Matthew Teutsch: English Doctorate and Norwegian Crawfish Consumer

UL Grad School -- 11/21/2018

When you talk to Matthew Teutsch about his plans as a Fulbright Scholar teaching at the University of Bergen in Norway, the last thing you’d think he would be excited about is the crawfish. But, Matthew is a man with a ravenous appetite not just for the delicious delicacies of South Louisiana, but for the culture and the writing that defines who we are as people and the decisions that cause us to rise up and take action. We talked to the Bossier City native and UL Lafayette alum before his big move to learn about his research, his future plans, and the opportunity he finds himself with that was made possible by earning his PhD in English at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
