In the same week (15-17 Jan 2019), Stefano Tiso, a MEME graduate, will visit us to evaluate the options for collaboration. He has done a Master’s project on evolutionary robotics and is very interested in questions related to MARM.
From 15-17 Jan 2019, Félix Geoffroy (Montpellier) will visit us to evaluate the option of writing a grant application for a postdoc in our group. Félix has just defended his PhD thesis on mechanistic models of (human) cooperation. He will give a talk during our monthly TRES seminar.
On 10 Jan 2019, Joost Raeymaekers from Nord University, Bodø, Norway, will visit us and give a talk at the GELIFES seminar on Local adaptation in a common landscape – A tale of two stickleback species. Joost is an expert on the genomic architecture of sticklebacks. He has been involved in studying how various factors, including ecological heterogeneity, genomic architecture, population connectivity and life history, influence adaptive potential in key model organisms such as three-spined sticklebacks. His research is of particular relevance for the project of Apu.
