Two stellar MS students are movin on….

Dave Carlson defended his MS thesis in June, entitled “De novo assembly, characterization and comparative analysis of entelegyne spider transcriptomes (Araneae: Entelegynae)”.  Dave will be moving to the Hollister Lab at Stony Brook University to pursue his PhD.

Kristen Emata defended in July.  Her thesis was entitled  “Molecular systematics, historical biogeography, and paedomorphic character evolution in the harvestmen genus Calicina (Opiliones, Laniatores)”Kristen will be taking a short break from academia, but I sincerely hope that she returns – she’s a tremendous talent.


Kristen talks about Calicina

Dave & Kristen were AWESOME graduate students in all ways possible – it’s time for them to move on, but they will be sorely missed in the Hedin lab  😦
