Congratulations to Naiara O'Mahony for being awarded her PhD for her thesis on "The effects of climate change on the global migration ecology of birds"! Naiara tackled some very thorny problems to do with explaining the current distribution of migrant birds, and predicting how that might change in the future (given the location of suitable climate space, some areas of which might not currently be used by the species). We look forward to seeing Naiara's work on these issues in print before too long!
Congratulations to Alke Voskamp and Teegan Docherty for both winning travel grants for Best Posters at the School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences Research Away Day on January 15th, 2016. The research away day also had talks from new appointees and from up-and-coming Research Associates. Christine Howard, a new Research Associate with CEG, gave an excellent talk titled "The impacts of climate change on migratory species".
CEG would like to extend a warm welcome to our new postgraduate students! We are excited to welcome back Stuart Brooker as a PhD student, who recently completed his research MSc with CEG. We also have a new MSc student, Harriet Newhouse, and two new MBiol students, Courtney Neal and Daisy Bartholomew. Click on their names to find out more about their previous experience and what they now plan to do. We look forward to sharing news on their progress and wish them luck for their studies here in Durham.
