Finally, my paper with Chad Brassil on how individual phenotypic variation affects ecological dynamics through reducing interaction strengths got accepted at Ecology and Evolution. I'm specially happy because this means I got my first open access paper accepted! I have to say that cascading the paper down from the Journal of Animal Ecology was pretty painless, which is always a plus.
The Gordon Research Seminar for grad students and post-docs was a success! Awesome job by the organizers Sarah Supp and Sarah Diamond and many thanks to them for inviting me to lead a discussion. I got to see some exciting research from my peers, met a bunch of sharp, awesome people, and got already excited to join next time!
The paper with my friend Rafael Raimundo published in AmNat on the effect of mutualism intimacy on adaptive speciation has now been retweeted 7 times. Parabéns Rafael!
Dr. Nelson Hairston Jr. from Cornell just visited the department. I really enjoyed talking science with him and he gave me some solid feedback on one of my papers in prep. On top of being an amazing, sharp ecologist, he is a pretty fun guy to talk to! Quote from N.H.Jr.: "There's only one world so everything is pseuroreplicated... time to move on guys!"
I've just resubmitted my paper on individual variation and interaction strengths, let's hope for the best!
Just giving the news blog a try! Here I will post news related to papers I submit, get in review or get published as well as other related miscellanea. I will also tag papers from other people I really enjoyed reading.
What is this?
Here you will find the latest news about my research. From time to time I will also post a short comment on a paper I loved from a colleague.
