Vincenzo Ellis – new postdoc

I recently received funding from the Carl Tryggers Foundation to begin a postdoc project with Staffan Bensch. I will work on the genetics and evolution of host specificity in malaria parasites of birds. I’m originally from San Diego, California. I did my undergraduate work at UC Santa Barbara and my PhD at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. From there I … Läs mer

Victoria Twort – new postdoc

Victoria’s interests are in applying genomic techniques to organisms in order to better understand evolutionary relationships and the patterns and processes of molecular evolution and diversification both at intra- and inter-specific levels. Victoria completed her PhD at The University of Auckland, New Zealand with Thomas Buckley and Richard Newcomb. For her thesis, she used genomics techniques to investigation various evolutionary … Läs mer

Magnus Lindh – new postdoc

I started working as a post doc in March together with Jörgen Ripa and Jacob Johansson in ThePEG, at the Evolutionary Ecology unit. Last year I defended my thesis in computational mathematics at Umeå University in northern Sweden. My research is about understanding bumblebee coexistence and response to environmental change. To do this I use optimization and techniques from adaptive … Läs mer

Markus Lindh – new postdoc

I did my PhD study at the Linnaeus University, Sweden and postdoc at University of Hawaii on microbial ecology and oceanography characterizing distribution patterns and responses to predicted climate change among marine bacterial assemblages. In much of my recent work I applied theoretical ecological frameworks such as metapopulation and metacommunity models to understand biogeography of marine microbes. Currently I am … Läs mer

Dafne Ram – new PhD student

Hej! My name is Dafne Ram and I am a new PhD student at the Biodiversity Unit. I will study how birds and butterflies are distributed at the forest-farmland interface and how they respond to changes in land use and climate. I will work under supervision of Åke Lindström, Lars Pettersson and Paul Caplat. I am from the Netherlands, where … Läs mer
