AGU’s Martinelli Travel Fellowships Awarded to Cubillo and Alfaro



Volcanologist Bruno Martinelli believed that to make progress in understanding any scientific topic, exchange and discussion between scientists are essential. While working with fellow volcanologists in South America, Martinelli encouraged them to bring their science to meetings outside Latin America and get exposed to new ideas, research, and methods while connecting with scientists from other parts of the world. At times, when his colleagues lacked funding, Martinelli paid for their travel himself.
