Maria wins the best student talk award at Cornell's Annual Ecology and Evolutionary Biology December Symposium
PhD student Maria (shown to the right) gave a beautiful presentation about her work on the genomic architecture of adaptation in silversides, and was awarded best student talk at Cornell's Annual Ecology and Evolutionary Biology December Symposium. Congratulations, Maria! Well done!
PhD students Nicolas and Carl also presented their research at the symposium. Nicolas discussed the genomic patterns underlying adaptive divergence in cod. Carl (co-advised by Nina and Pete McIntyre) shared his plans to use genomic tools for species delimitation in suckers. We are very proud of you all!
The Center for Vertebrate Genomics (CVG) at Cornell has selected Nicolas as one of two 2020 Distinguished Genomics Scholars for his exciting work looking at the genomic underpinnings of fisheries- and climate-induced evolution in a natural population. Congratulations, Nicolas!
The lab gathered at Nina's for DIY holiday decorations, dinner, drinks, and dessert! We each made festive centerpieces with candles by adding greens and cones we collected from the yard. We ended the evening with Nina's homemade æbleskiver, a delicious Danish sweet treat.
