We are very proud of Vrinda, who successfully defended her PhD thesis following a fantastic seminar. Vrinda worked with long-term selection lines of beetles adapting to new resources to understand the factors that explain population dynamics during adaptation.
Towards the end of this year, long-term lab members left for new adventures; coincidentally both going to Germany! Mrudula is starting as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Cologne, and Parth is jumping into a PhD program at the University of Dusseldorf. We’ll miss them both, and are glad that we at least managed to get together for a distanced goodbye outdoors.
The lab set up a booth at the campus science day last week. About a 1000 young students visited the campus and it was amazing to see the energy. Here are some pictures from our team, who did a great job!
Our campus annual talks just finished, and many of us from the lab presented our work. It was a hectic but fun few days. Here are some pictures of lab people with their posters.
