Student profile

Kyle Dilliplaine

For 2014 CGC awardee Kyle Dilliplaine, working on a master’s degree at UAF is the continuation of a childhood dream. Growing up north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kyle was drawn to nature and science from an early age. Summers invariably found him exploring the nearby woods, and evenings were often spent watching science documentaries on TV—“I could never get enough of marine-focused exploration, especially deep sea.” Read Kyle's full profile and view previous student profiles.
