Congratulations to Dr. Casey Youngflesh, Dr. Catherine Foley, and Dr. Maureen Lynch, who graduated with their Ph.D.s from the Department of Ecology & Evolution a few weeks ago. All of them did an outstanding job with their dissertations and are now busy bees in their new jobs. We will miss you guys!

Precipitation could spell peril for penguins

Lab member Casey Youngflesh has a photo featured as a part of the journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment’s new ‘Ecopics’ series. This series features wildlife photos that describe some interesting natural phenomenon. Casey found this Adélie penguin buried by snow near Joinville Island on the Antarctic Peninsula. Increased snow and rain may have negative consequences for penguin populations, as neither eggs nor young chicks can accommodate being wet!

Software Carpentry/HPC Workshop at POLAR 2018

Lynch Lab members Casey Youngflesh and Catherine Foley (in addition to some folks at TACC) kicked off this year’s POLAR 2018 conference by teaching a 2-day Software Carpentry/High Performance Computing workshop. The workshop was made possible by an NSF Research Coordination Grant, which endeavors to develop better cyberinfrastructure resources for complex analyses conducted by polar scientists. Thanks to everyone for attending! All workshop materials can be found here.
