New PhD student Eva Drukker

Eva Drukker (MSc) is from the Netherlands and studied biology at Wageningen University. She did her internship research at the Bureau Stadsnatuur, studying arthropods on green roofs. In March, just before the Corona outbreak, she started her PhD on this topic supervised by Prof. Eric Schranz, Casper Quist and me. For the coming four years she will be studying these new ecosystems in our urban landscape. Among other things she is trying to unravel the complicated interactions that take place in these elevated habitats. Besides her research, she is very fond of and experienced in teaching and therefore takes part in two courses that we give at Biosystematics Group.

7th Vidi user committee meeting – on Skype

On April 20th we had our 7th meeting but our first online – due to the covid-19 outbreak. It went relatively smoothly and almost all members were present. We made quite some progress the last couple of months especially in Niccolo’s project on the genetics. Now that Lotte is back from maternity leave her project on the elicitor is getting back on track again!
