This week I’ll be presenting some of my recent postdoctoral work on Rhagoletis pomonella cold tolerance at the Canadian Society of Zoologists Annual Meeting in Windsor ON. Travel to this conference is possible thanks to winning a CSZ postdoc travel award, generously funded by the Integrative Ecology and Evolution section of the society.
Just 2 weeks post-Ph.D. defense, I set off in a UHaul truck to head to Denver, Colorado, where I’m joining the Ragland lab at University of Colorado Denver. I’ll be working on the overwintering biology and development of the apple maggot fly (Rhagoletis pomonella) and other insects for a couple of years. I’m excited to join the team!
