USGS Mendenhall Postdoctoral Researcher Rose Palermo receives prestigious award from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Dr. Rose Palermo began her Mendenhall Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center in October 2022 after completing her doctoral degree in Marine Geology at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in September 2022. The nomination for Dr. Palermo states, “This year’s second recipient of the Pantelyev Award cares for and is passionate about advocating for her community on a system-wide and individual level. She is incredibly kind and thoughtful and sparks joy wherever she goes. She served as E-SAC [MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science Student Advisory Committee] president, E-SAC treasurer, and an at-large JP [MIT-WHOI Joint Program] student representative, organizing fun events and working with department administration on student issues, while also holding various roles in other committees. In these roles, she fiercely advocated for students and put diversity, equity, and inclusion issues at the forefront of her work. In collaboration with other G&G [Department of Geology and Geophysics at WHOI] students, she also compiled a revised and updated version of the JP G&G handbook so that future students could navigate the Ph.D. process with ease.”
