We wish all the best to Wenwen as he moves back to China to finish his PhD. While visiting Houston he made great progress on several manuscripts that we’re very excited about. Most are comparisons of the ecology of Spartina alterniflora in its native range in the US and its introduced range in China, but Wenwen also worked on some of the GCE-LTER long-term datasets. We hope to get a lot of these papers published in 2019.

Congratulations to Huy Vu on successfully defending his dissertation in July. He did an excellent job. Huy is making some revisions to the draft of his dissertation and then is going to go back to focusing on writing papers and archiving his data sets. And looking for jobs. Please pass on any leads to him. He’s interested in both academic postdocs and agency positions.
