Matt and Aj with coworkersThe Ginder-Vogels are happy to announce that AJ, already a valued member of the Sparks Environmental Soil Chemistry Research Group at the University of Delaware thanks to his unique skill set (cuddling, trying to get in laps, and tail-wagging), has passed his qualifying exams and is now a full-fledged Ph.D. candidate! There’s gossip that he might leave the research group to pursue other career opportunities, like, oh, learning to be a guide dog, but if he needs a “Plan B,” he’ll be welcomed back to the world of academic research with open arms.
