Pablo was directly accepted to a Ph.D. position in Wolfgang Stephan's lab at the University of Munich in 2009. He has begun a 3-year program, with research focusing on recent selection scenarios in Drosophilia, utilizing mathematical modeling. After graduation from the Master's program, Pablo took a much needed trip back to see his family in Bolivia, but is now busily applying himself in his research endeavors.
Jennifer was accepted into a Ph.D. position at the University of Friburg in Switzerland. Her thesis is entitled, "The Evolutionary Consequences of Small versus Large Populaiton Size in Daphnia." She is doing this project in Dr. Christoph Haag's population genetics group. The project has involved field sampling from the rocky shores of Finland, and to find more updated and current information on her and her project, please visit: Jennifer Lohr's homepage.
Rebecca moved back to Seattle, Washington, initially to take some time off, and more recently she started two internships. One is a grant writing and business assistant position with a non-profit environmental consulting firm called Sound Footprint. The second is assisting with the data analysis of forest vegetation data for The Nature Conservancy. Hopefully, one of these positions will lead to an adequately paid position in the near future.
Rob took up a laboratory technician position in a microbiology lab at W.K. Kellogg Biological Station, where he worked for 9 months subsequent to graduation from the University of Munich. While working in the microbiology lab, Rob has published one manuscript and been preparing two manuscripts for publication from previous research that he has done. In June 2010, he will start a Ph.D. position at Michigan State University in Dr. Zsofia Szendrei's lab in the Department of Entomology. His thesis will involve research about asparagus (Asparagus officinalis).
Delsy has been applying for money to do research in orchids, specifically concerning their diversity, conservation and pollination systems. She recently became an aunt, and has also been delighting in her newfound baby nephew. More recently, Delsy will be teaching a seminar to students at Ricardo Palma University. The seminar focuses on how to formulate theses and will review various artcles that students must read.
Ricardo was also directly accepted into a Ph.D. position in the laboratory of Wolfgang Stephan at the University of Munich. He is pursuing research into models of linkage disequilibrium as it relates to recent selection events for cold adaptation in Drosophilia. His expected year of completed is 2013.
