A Marine Science student in the UH Hilo Marine Option Program (MOP) took top honors at this year’s 30th Annual MOP Student Symposium on Maui. The Award for Best Overall Research Paper went to senior Kristina Tietjen for her project entitled “Evidence for a New Genus of Triphoridae in Hawaiʻi Based on Scanning Electron Micrographs of the Protoconch.

In addition, Marine Science senior and MOP Student Coordinator Laura Knight was awarded the prestigious Anna Toy Ng Memorial scholarship. This award was established to annually recognize the most exemplary MOP student from across the UH System for marine scholarship, ocean stewardship, and participation in the program.

Seven other UH Hilo students presented their work at the conference, which included oral and poster presentations on research and internship projects.
