University of Montana geosciences graduate student, and UM BRIDGES Trainee, Nicholas E. Thiros is one of 52 graduate students in the country to receive funding this year from a U.S. Department of Energy program designed to enhance graduate research.

Thiros is in the first cohort of UM’s UM BRIDGES Food Energy Water Nexus Trainee Program, which prepares students to advance science toward more sustainable food-energy-water systems. His work in this trainee program complements the research he’ll do at the Berkeley National Laboratory, said Thiros’ adviser, hydrogeology Assistant Professor Payton Gardner.
