He was selected from more than 70 of the most qualified students in the world who are studying “ecosystem services,” a phrase that encompasses many direct and indirect benefits humans derive from our natural world. At the Hollings Lab, Crimian is working on a variety of projects focused on the well-being of coastal communities.
