Column in Crastina!

Check out the column I wrote for the Science Communication organization Crastina

GREAT PRESENTATION ≠ BAD SCIENCE

How come researchers who are great presenters often are disregarded as bad scientists? Adria LeBoeuf, multi-disciplinary scientist and communications evangelist, thinks there has to be an end to the social punishment of clear and passionate oral communication.

Visit to IST, Vienna

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.

Visit to Cambridge

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!
