New email look for blog posts

In the communication audit this spring, there were some confusion about emails coming from our blog and our newsletter. People had a hard time distinguish between the different emails. To make this easier, I have now changed the design of the Läs mer

Why Pub Einar?

Einar at home, back from a research trip to Sudan (1984)

Every Friday an email is sent out to everybody on the Biology department mailing list, saying that beer is available for after work “discussions”. Sometimes the event is called the Friday Pub, but for many years and still now Läs mer

Annika Hecktor – new financial administrator

Hi, I´m Annika Hecktor and I´ve just started my work as a financial administrator at the Department of Biology.

My desk will be in the Prefect Office for the first weeks and after that, you will find me somewhere in the corridors of Evolutionary ecology.

I´ve studied economics at the University of Lund , and now I´ve been working several years at Lunds kommun, with administration in a school in Genarp with children 6-15 years, mostly with economy and student registration.

Nature and animals are important things in my life. We have a bunch of dogs (Labradors) and I walk them, I train them, I run them in competitions and I use them as picking up dogs at bird shoots. I also shoot myself, but I prefer clay pigeons 😊. I spend many of my vacation days in the autumn outside, with my dogs and friends.

I live right outside Veberöd in a house high up at Romeleåsen, where deer live and our gravel road ends… And If you walk “Skåneleden” west of Veberöd – a trail with orange markings – you will pass our house!

Himma Bakam – new PhD student

I am a new PhD student under the supervision of Professors Susanne Åkesson and
Åke Lindström. My research will focus on Winter Ecology and Movements of Barn Swallows Hirundo rustica. My research questions cover aspects of migration and connectivity of the swallows breeding in Europe and wintering in western and southern sub-saharan Africa.

I hold a Bachelors of Technology degree in Applied Zoology from Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University and later earned a Masters degree in Conservation Biology from the A. P. Leventis Ornithological Research Institute, University of Jos, all in Nigeria.

I am getting to know everyone and I am looking forward to meeting those I am yet to, especially connecting to what each one is doing. I will be glad to chat with you on my research goal, and also learn and share from your experiences. I gradually like the coffee since I do not add much milk now.

See you around!

Patrik Karell – guest researcher at MEEL and EvolEco

Hi, My name is Patrik Karell and I am an evolutionary ecologist from Finland. In August I brought my family with me and came to Lund University to work as a guest researcher here for a year. My aim is to collaborate with Staffan Bensch lab and Jan-Åke Nilsson’s lab within my Academy of Finland research fellowship project on tawny owls, colour polymorphism and adaptations to climate change.

Here in Lund we will together with postdoc Chiara Morosinotto focus mainly on lab work on tawny owl telomere dynamics and on development and implementation of a protocol to study ecological energetics and immunology of tawny owls under controlled conditions.

I am excited to be here in Lund to meet new people and learn more about what is going on here! …och jag är Finlandssvensk så svenska funkar bra!

See you around,
Patrik
