Name Droppers: Transportation fellowship goes to Aggie

By
From page A8 | July 24, 2014 |

Matthew Palm, a doctoral student at UC Davis, has been selected for the Dwight David Eisenhower Fellowship, administered by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Eisenhower fellowship is a competitive transportation program that furthers the careers of recipients by providing the financial resources needed to pursue their research. It includes tuition as well as travel and expenses to attend the Transportation Research Board annual meeting in Washington, D.C., in January.

The fellowship will allow Palm to continue his interest in social justice regarding transportation and housing issues.

His work includes a new program that lends folding bikes to families in Woodland, which gives people the ability to safely store them inside their homes. The program allows Palm to look at the factors of why people prefer to bike. He examines the entire social picture, including things like happiness, general health and their new driving tendencies.

Mary Lou Flint, a longtime leader of the University of California Statewide Integrated Pest Management Program and an Extension entomologist with the UC Davis department of entomology and nematology, is the recipient of the 2014 James M. Meyer Distinguished Achievement Award for her outstanding contributions to the university.

Flint, UC IPM’s associate director for Urban and Community IPM, and who has just retired from the university, is not only the third entomologist to receive the award, but also the third IPM specialist. A dinner honoring her will take place in the fall.

Flint has been heavily involved in the leadership of UC IPM Program since 1983 and is UC IPM’s longest-tenured employee. Also since 1983, she has served as an Extension entomologist in the department.

Some of her accomplishments include writing the UC IPM’s “IPM Manual” series of books from 1980 to 2007, including IPM manuals on 15 different agricultural crops or crop groups; establishing the UC IPM Pest Note series for home, garden, landscape and urban audiences; authoring several important books on IPM including “Pests of the Garden and Small Farm,” “IPM in Practice: Principles and Methods of IPM” and “The Natural Enemies Handbook”; creating some of the earliest interactive learning tools of IPM, and developing hands-on, train-the-trainer programs for UC Master Gardeners, retail nursery personnel and landscape professionals.
