Congratulations to Andreia

Lots of congratulations to Andreia for receiving her first research grant for her dissertation research. The Harris Center for World Ecology is funding her new work on orchid bee cognition at the St. Louis Zoo.

Congratulations to Itachi!

Lots of congratulations for Itachi Mills, who successfully defended her masters thesis last week and is submitting her final thesis today! Much more video analysis of gruesome predation events of fruit flies still to come.

Animal Behavior Society 2017

We all made it home from the Animal Behavior Society annual meeting in Toronto. Sleep-deprived, but excited to hear and talk about so much cool science. We had a busy meeting: Michael attended as a Charles Henry Turner undergrad fellow, Itachi presented a poster on her thesis work, Andreia organized our outreach efforts, and Aimee gave a talk in the cognitive ecology symposium. Plus we got to visit with lab alumna Isabel and see her excellent talk on sampling in chickadees from her new lab. Thanks to Pablo, Matt, and Randall to holding down the lab while the rest of us traveled.
