Welcome to Alison

Welcome to Alison Cleary, a Norwegian Science Foundation funded postdoc who will be joining our lab for a little while to work on Antarctic fur seal population genetics in collaboration with Andy Lowther and Kit Kovaks.

√Ä la prochaine, William

We sadly say a premature farewell to William Handel, a visiting PhD student of Greg Charrier, who broke his collar bone in a freak skateboarding accident ūüė¶ ¬†We hope he has a good trip back to Brittany and wish him a speedy recovery.

Successful field trip to Brittany

David, Michele and I had a fun and successful trip to Brittany and the northern french coast to collect clams (Mya arenaria). ¬†We’re grateful to our collaborator Greg Charrier, as well as to my parents in law, Bob and Janine, for a very warm welcome! ¬†We are also eternally grateful to Jaques Grall for¬†telling us exactly where to look for Mya.
