As of April 1 I have joined the Caccone Lab in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Institute for Biospheric Studies at Yale University!
It was tough to say good bye to everyone at Queen's, but I am really excited to be returning my focus to the evolution and conservation of Galapagos tortoises.
It is a really exciting time to be working on Galapagos tortoises. One of the thought to be extinct species may have been rediscovered surviving in the wild! I will be analyzing DNA of this newly found individual and comparing it to the type specimen to confirm whether it is truly of the Fernandina species.
