Jessica Bartley, a sixth year graduate student in the Neuroinformatics and Brain Connectivity lab, has been awarded FIU’s Dissertation Year Fellowship (DYF) for $16,600. This scholarship will cover Jessica’s final two semesters of dissertation research and writing for her work investigating the neural correlates of physics learning and physics problem solving, a longitudinal project that documents how reasoning-related brain networks develop across classroom instruction. Jessica is one of two students in the Physics Department to receive this year’s competitive DYF! Congratulations Jessica!
