Tellier, Koenigbauer Honored by International Association for Great Lakes Research

Two Purdue Forestry and Natural Resources affiliated researchers will be honored for their work at the 2023 International Association for Great Lakes Research conference in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, May 8-12.

Joshua Tellier, who completed his master’s degree in the Höök lab in 2021, received the Elsevier EarlyJoshua Tellier IAGLR Elsevier Award honoree Career Scientist Award for Most Notable Paper in 2022 for his work on “Widespread prevalence of hypoxia and the classification of hypoxic conditions in the Laurentian Great Lakes.” The article was published in the February 2022 issue of the Journal of Great Lakes Research, volume 48, issue 1, pages 13-23. Tellier, who was co-advised by Drs. Tomas Höök and Paris Collingsworth, is currently an aquatic biologist with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy.

The JGLR/Elsevier Early Career Award is awarded to the top-ranked paper in the current volume of the Journal of Great Lakes Research whose lead author was within five years of graduation from their terminal degree at the time of acceptance.  Papers are judged by the IAGLR Chandler-Misener Review Committee. Evaluations are based on: originality, an outstanding original piece of work; contribution, a substantial body of theoretical, experimental or field research; presentation, clarity of literary style and illustration.

Tellier is the first Purdue affiliated student to receive the Elsevier award since Jonah Withers (MS 2012) did so in 2016.

Scott Koenigbauer, a 2020 master’s alumnus and current PhD student in the Höök lab, was awarded theScott Koenigbauer - IAGLR Baldwin Award recipient 2023 Norman S. Baldwin Fishery Science scholarship for his research on spawning utilization of a restored reef in Saginaw Bay. Koenigbauer’s master’s research investigated the variation of reproductive traits such as egg size, particularly in yellow perch in Lake Michigan and inland lakes. His PhD research more generally explores reproductive trait diversity in freshwater fishes.

The Baldwin Fishery Science scholarship is awarded to deserving graduate students conducting research pertaining to Great Lakes fisheries. The scholarship is sponsored by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, IAGLR's oldest sustaining member. The award recipient(s) are selected by a panel of judges appointed by the chair of the IAGLR Awards Committee. 

The scholarship is named in honor of Norman S. Baldwin, the first executive secretary of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, who led the commission for 15 years from 1957 until he died in 1971. He was widely recognized as a scientist and as a leader, well-qualified for the challenge of leading a newly formed international commission.

Koenigbauer is the latest Purdue student to receive the Baldwin scholarship, following Zachary Feiner in 2013 (Eco-evolutionary dynamics of life history trait variation in Great Lakes percids).
