This past year, I received a NSF GROW fellowship to study ferns in Marilyn Ball’s lab at the Australian National University. I was based in Canberra, the “bush capital,” for most of my time in Australia.
ANU is indeed situated in “the bush”! The university is surrounded by hills covered with native plants and wildlife.
Canberra is a great place for bird-watching! The cockatoos and parrots are everywhere.
I really enjoyed my time in Canberra. Stay tuned for the findings from my project!
