After six years of graduate research I am defending my dissertation on Thursday July 9, 10:30 am at the George Mason University Fairfax campus. I'm also happy to announce the reason for moving up my graduation date is due to receiving a postdoctoral fellowship through the Henry Doorly Zoo, Omaha NE. I will be switching focal research areas from Sundaland, to Madagascar! I will get to go do field work, and research the genomics of lemurs. I'm very excited about the new chapter of my life!
