Honored to be invited to go visit the IST Austria thanks to Sylvia Cremer in early December. I'll be talking at their Evolunch seminar series. Sylvia's lab focused on social immunity in ants, looking at how their communities can prevent epidemics.
Had a great visit to the Zoology Department at Cambridge at the end of October for their Behaviour, Ecology, Evolution Seminar series. I was hosted by the fantastic Hannah Rowland. While I meet a bunch of folks doing fascinating work, it was super exciting to meet Becky Kilner and the people in her lab working on Burying Beetles. These beetles engage in serious parental care (both parents!), where they feed their young through trophallaxis!
