After a brief hiatus to welcome my second daughter to the world, I'm back. I'm excited to announce that the lab is growing in more ways than one. We are pleased to welcome a new undergraduate, Madison, to the lab. Madison will be working on several projects related to the snail system, including further tests of temperature tolerance. We are also pleased to welcome graduate student, Harrison Tobi, to the lab. Harrison will officially join the lab in Spring 2017. He comes from an aquaculture background and will be working on a Master's thesis that investigate parasite ecology and evolution in bay scallops.
