Fall 2015

A few things happening this fall:

I gave a seminar to the Department Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Members of the Johnson Lab were excellent hosts and I was impressed with the esprit de corps in the department at CU.

I gave a talk at the regional NIH IDeA meeting in Idaho and then traveled to Washington DC to help Sarah Olson, David Hayman and Liam McGuire present work on white nose syndrome to the Department of Defense.
