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.




More congrats to Matt!

Congratulations for Matt Austin, who was recently awarded a TWA Scholarship from the University of Missouri System. This is a great award that will help fund education and research expenses for Matt’s next year, and will help make more of the genetic and anatomical additions to his summer field work possible.
