Avian Thermal Biology Visitor

The lab will be hosting a PhD student from Spain for the next 3 months.

Núria Playà Montmany from the University of Extremadura has just arrived (I’m a few days late, she arrived in late January!). I met Núria last summer defending her poster at the SEB meeting in Sevilla. She will be becoming a thermal imaging expert while she is here!

With overlapping interests in avian physiology and the lab’s interests in thermal biology and studying animal responses to climate change, we hope to have a productive visit. Here is a link to Núria’s blog:

Welcome to the lab, Núria! Let’s hope you have a good few months working with us.

Visitor to the Lab

It has been a busy January, and so my updates are out of date! From Jan 10th to the 24th, I hosted Dr. Agnes Jullian Vinet in the lab, mostly to learn thermal imaging for future human thermogenesis research.

Dr. Vinet was a welcome visitor, enduring the dark, but not so cold, Canadian winter with us! Thanks to Stephen Cheung’s lab, Gary Hodges and Leed McNab for helping to host Agnes.

Hopefully we can return the favour and visit her lab next summer!
