Today Leslie successfully defended her thesis, to cap off nearly four years in the lab. It was a beautiful presentation and the heartfelt remarks that followed led much of the audience to reach for tissues.
This morning Aparna successfully defended her thesis, the first grad student in the lab to reach this huge milestone. It was an excellent presentation, to top off years of hard work. Congratulations, Aparna!!! We celebrated via Zoom but are hopeful that a more traditional celebration will be possible soon.

We are very excited to have Minhee Park join our lab as a postdoc. Welcome, Minhee!
Most of the lab braved wet and windy weather to visit Ano Nuevo State Park during the elephant seal pupping and mating season. Fortunately for us, seals are more active on cold, rainy days and we came came very close to one seal, witnessed a couple of fights, and heard lots of noisy pups. It’s definitely worth a visit!
