Ashley Biernesser, a graduate student at Boston College, has received a National Science Foundation graduate research fellowship.

Awarded to senior undergraduates and first or second year graduate students, this fellowship invests in an individual's potential by affording an opportunity to pursue his or her research aspirations.

Biernesser's current project is “Iron pyridyl diimine catalysts for the production of a tunable biodegradable polymer.”

She is the daughter of James and Beth Biernesser of Cranberry Township, and is a 2007 graduate of Seneca Valley High School and a 2011 graduate of Duquesne University.
