After an intense first six months with lots of ups and downs, we celebrated our first EEI retreat!
Two of our friends and collaborators stopped by in Bremen this summer!!
Carlotta went to Guadeloupe for some lucinid fieldwork and to learn from Prof. Olivier Gros.
Isidora won a prize at the MarMic retreat for her poster outlining the research for her Ph.D. thesis: “Friends with benefits: How are bacterial partners involved in lucinid adaptation to environmental change”
Anna Carlotta Kück has joined us to study nitrogen fixation in lucinid clam symbionts from different habitats in Central America.
Our first Ph.D. student has joined the group. This is a dream-come-true! I am so happy.
We have been working with a Template of Wowchemy, using the Hugo static site generator to create a website for our future group.
Last November, we hosted a global, virtual conference for Early Career Microbial Ecologists #UnityInDiversity
