Rittik begins a faculty position

This post is delayed by about 10 months because we couldn’t have a nice farewell for Rittik during the pandemic. But he was back in the lab for a bit and we were able to do things properly this time around. We are very happy to report that Rittik has joined as a member of the faculty at Visva Bharati University in West Bengal. Rittik plans to continue addressing questions about microbial and insect ecology, behaviour, and evolution, and we look forward to exciting new work from his lab in the coming years.

Congratulations Dr Ravi Kumar!

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.
