Phenom work study student Chris Boccia is on a tear this spring and has picked up yet another competitive award – this time the prestigious ASSU Graduating Student Leadership Award. Congrats Chris!
Headed to Boston this week to give a seminar at UMass Boston and catch up with old friend and colleague Liam Revell. Thanks for the invite Liam!!
Congratulations to lab members Michael Foisy and Chris Boccia for winning coveted NSERC CGS-M graduate fellowships! In addition to the prestige, these federal awards support a full year of MSc research. Big congrats guys!
I’m pleased to welcome MSc candidate Michael Foisy to the lab. Michael isn’t an entirely new face, as he’s been in EEB since Fall 2015 as a masters student in Helen Rodd’s lab and I’ve been on his thesis committee from the start. Happily, Michael and Helen have invited me to be a co-supervisor, so the lab gains Michael in the bargain. Stay tuned for great phylogenetic comparative work from Michael on sensory bias in guppies!
Honored to have been an invited speaker at the University of Michigan’s Early Career Scientists Symposium this weekend. This year’s topic was Frontiers in Community Assembly, and we had an outstanding lineup. Check out the program and poster here.
Congrats to work-study student Chris Boccia for winning an NSERC USRA award to support fieldwork with the lab this summer studying lizard communities in the Dominican Republic!
