New lab members

Rudy Riesch joined the lab in fall 2012 and is preparing for his first field season with the stick insect system. He will explore the role of CHCs and chemical communication in adaptation and speciation. Kei Matsubayashi received a fellowship from Japan to work as a post-doctoral fellow in the lab for two years. He will continue his work on speciation in ladybird beetles.
