Mori Williams Graduate School Acceptances 2024 UNLV

Congratulations to EWU McNair Alum Mori Staar! Mori was recently accepted by the Water Resources PhD program at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. In 2021, Mori graduated from Eastern Washington University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science with an emphasis in Chemistry and a minor in Japanese. Mori completed their Master's in Atmospheric & Environmental Science from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in 2023.

Mori is one of many scholars who launched into his first summer research project at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. For his EWU McNair Research Internship, he worked with Dr. Camille McNeely in researching cyanobacteria in local areas such as the Spokane River and the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. He completed his project with gusto and applied to multiple graduate schools despite the pandemic.

The EWU McNair staff are so excited for Mori on his next steps towards attaining his PhD!
