Fidler Named Fulbright Scholar

Robert Fidler earned a Fulbright scholarship.

Robert Fidler, a graduate student in marine biology, has been named a Fulbright Scholar for 2014-15 and will spend nine months in the Philippines researching the efficacy of marine protected areas. Fidler, 26, is a Reston, Va., native who came to Florida Tech to earn his master’s degree in marine biology, which he completed last summer under the guidance of Ralph Turingan, a professor of biological sciences and two-time Fulbright recipient. Fielder will study marine protected areas – known as MPAs – to analyze how effective they are at both protecting the extremely diverse ecosystem of coral reefs and sea life and at maintaining the fish population, on which millions of people in these regions rely.
