The grant was used primarily for graduate student, Christopher Lawrence, to support his research on mimicry. His comments were as follows:

When this project was approved, I was very excited! It meant I would have the ability and support to collect and quantify behavioral data for my dissertation. It would also see the collaboration between two Princeton organizations that heavily influenced my thinking. The time that I have spent collecting this data has helped me mature in my ideas and my research goals. I really cannot explain how comforting it is to know that I have the full support of CST staff and members for my research. Craig has been an excellent addition and he has helped me discern the correct steps moving forward. I always recommend CST to people and groups looking for funding.

The following is a description of the CST-Art museum collaborative event scheduled for November 17, 2022:

"Mimicry in Art and Nature" 

Examining the visual characteristics of toxic Heliconius butterflies and paintings by various artists, this panel considers mimicry and forgery in science and in the visual arts. Speakers include Bart Devolder, Chief Conservator; Christopher Lawrence, Ph.D. candidate in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology; and Ahmed Elgammal, Professor of Computer Science at Rutgers University. Moderated by Craig Marshall, Assistant Director of STEM Education in the Council on Science and Technology. This panel is co-sponsored by the Council on Science and Technology.
