Getting to know the lab, Beatrix Potter-style

As a way of helping you get to know the lab, we have undertaken a state-of-the-art personality test to help give a picture of what we’re all really like.

So, in terms of Beatrix Potter characters, we are:

Dave, Sue*, Emily and Becky: Mrs Tiggywinkle

Jade and Ginny**: Jemima Puddleduck

Nicki, Georgina, Vicki, and Ashleigh Griffin*: Peter Rabbit

*Honorary lab members for this purpose.

**Apparently Ginny has a bit of the Squirrel Nutkin about her as well.

If you would like to see how you match up with the lab, please go here:

Another hello and another goodbye

Hello to Connor Dunleavy, who is joining the lab for the next few weeks as a Nuffield Research Placement student. Connor will be working with Ginny and Vicki on the bugs, so welcome to the lab Connor!

And goodbye to Sophie van Meyel, who has now completed her internship from the University of Poitiers. We wish Sophie well with the rest of her degree and we thank her for all her hard-work and wasp counting, alongside her own behavioural experiments – bon voyage et bonne chance!
