We also welcomed 4 new PhD students to our lab: Lorenzo, Kyle, Coralie and Jess. Lorenzo will further synthesize the PFAS literature while Kyle will work on the pesticide pollution literature. Coralie will develop new meta-analytic tools, working with Prof David Warton. Jess, who did Honours degree with us already, will apply deep learning methods to Australian wildlife image data, working with Prof Richard Kingsford, people from Taronga Zoo, and NSW Wildlife and National Parks.
This is going to be a huge variety of research work - just like the food on the table (see picture above - this is a potluck party where everybody brings a dish!). As they say: “Variety is the spice of life”.
I am very much looking forward to what the future will bring to I-DEEL!
