'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.
