I’m thrilled to announce that I have been invited to speak at the University of Michigan’s Early Career Scientists Symposium! The talks this year will be about the ecological and evolutionary processes of the microbiome, and I’ll be talking about how Euhaplorchis californiensis manipulates the behavior and physiology of its intermediate host (California killifish). I’ll also talk about the ecological and evolutionary implications of parasite manipulation of host phenotype.
The keynote speakers are Drs. Seth Bordenstein and Georgianna May. Reading through the talk titles from the keynote speakers and the rest of the invited speakers, it looks like it’s going to be an really awesome event. Click here or on the image below for more information about the event.
