Genetics leads bio grad to a Fulbright in Finland

The threespine stickleback, a shiny little fish with spines on its back and belly, is a darling of evolutionary biologists. That’s because it thrives in the ocean, where its ancestor lived, as well as freshwater. But the story of the fish’s adaptation to different environments also hooked a TCNJ student, who has now won a Fulbright Fellowship to study stickleback evolution in Finland. Krishna Parekh, a biology major who graduated in December, came to college with a plan toContinue Reading
