Eddie successfully defended his thesis entitled “Battle between insect eggs and host plant: Ecology and evolution of pierid egg-induced responses in Brassicaceae” last Monday in front of a tough committee in the Aula of Wageningen University. Besides, he can immediately start his new job as an ecologist in an agency near Berlin. Congratulations to both achievements, Eddie, and all the best for your future! It was a long road together but in the end you made it, you can be proud of yourself!
