We want to take a moment to highlight one of our People of Science, Nick Homziak. Nick, a Ph.D. student in the Kawahara Lab (McGuire Center, Florida Museum), was awarded best master’s thesis from the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences for his research on Erebinae moths.

Nick Homziak“Nick is an exceptional researcher whose work on Erebinae moths furthers our understanding of an economically and agriculturally important pest group,” said Akito Kawahara, assistant curator of Lepidoptera at the McGuire Center. “His dedication, his passion for natural history and museum-based research, and his use of cutting-edge molecular approaches make this award well-deserved.”
