C├Ędric G. Fichot

Congratulations to Dr. Cèdric G. Fichot, winner of The Graduate School's 2013 Outstanding Dissertation AwardFichot graduated from the University of South Carolina with a doctorate in marine science in May 2013. His dissertation, entitled “Transformations and fates of terrigenous dissolved organic matter in ocean margins,” develops new techniques and approaches for studying the fate of continental runoff in the ocean.

Fichot has more than a decade of field experience. Research expeditions have taken him throughout the Western Hemisphere including to the Arctic Ocean, Nova Scotia, the Florida coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and the South and Mid Atlantic Bights. The latest of his nine publications appears in Nature: Scientific Reports.

While still a graduate student, Fichot earned departmental and university-wide recognition for his teaching ability and his adeptness at explaining his research to an intelligent, but non-specialized audience.  He finished 1st in the 2012 Graduate Student Day oral presentation competition and was awarded a 2012-2013 College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Dissertation Fellowship.
