This piece is about the work one of the students in my lab, Amy McDermott, is doing for her thesis. I’m particularly excited about this work as aside from straight up finding it interesting, it’s a great way for me to continue a collaboration with my post-doc supervisor Mark Westneat at U of Chicago.

Amy’s also been really developing her skills in science communication, and decided she wanted to tell this story in her own words, on her own blog, so I kindly will direct you over there.
