Congratulations to Chris Anderson and Madeleine Strait for their acceptance to UW’s Biology PhD program, and welcome to the Brosi Lab! Chris and Madeleine received their offers two weeks ago, and made their decision official this week.
Chris has an evolutionary biology and computational background, and has a passion for fungal networks. During his time in the Brosi Lab, he hopes to study how ecological networks are constructed and how we can quantitatively measure these networks. Madeleine has a background in biology and neuroscience, and is very interested in species interactions, particularly those involving plants, in human-altered environments. She hopes to integrate fieldwork and wet lab techniques to understand how mutualisms change with anthropogenic disturbance.
We’re so excited for Chris and Madeleine to join us!
