I was already anticipating the upcoming Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology meeting, and my excitement has grown! This past weekend I learned I had won a Broadening Participation Travel Award to support my attendance. Looking forward to being in New Orleans this January!
In the last week, I’ve visited two cool environments: the tide pools at Bird Rock, La Jolla and Palomar Mountain! At the former, I got to see an octopus attempt to drag a GoPro into the rocky crevice it was inhabiting, and at the latter, I checked out the 200 inch Hale Telescope at CalTech’s Palomar Observatory. Exploring new research never fails to get me excited about science!
My project on Experiment.com was funded! I look forward to heading into the wilds of Oklahoma and Arkansas this summer to start new work on Leiobunum relictum! http://www.experiment.com/daddylonglegs
