Dr. Jeannine Cavender‐Bares visits OU
Last week, May 5th, Dr. Jeannine Cavender‐Bares from the University of Minnesota came to Oklahoma to visit OU. She gave a talk about her research and how she connects Phylogenetic history, Evolution, Traits, Communities and Ecosystem Processes.
I and another Ph.D. student from the Department of Microbiology and Plant Biology had lunch with her in the same day. We discussed our research and experience with teaching. It was a great opportunity for me to connect with such a great researcher.
Sorry, I didn't post this before, I forgot what my password was and didn't have much time to surf the internet.
But here are the news: I gave a talk about my research for the Plant Biology Seminar in the Department of Microbiology and Plant Biology at OU. This talk is required for every time you enroll in this course. At the end, I got great feedback from my peers and professors from the department. So here is a flyer which was distributed throughout the department. These are preliminary results referent to one-year experiment. We hope to observe some more cool stuff in the field this year.
I recently joined Ecology Journal Club, which is a group at OU that discusses all topics in Ecology by having different graduate students leading a paper each week. This week, I’ll be leading the discussion of the paper entitled: “Using dark diversity and plant characteristics to guide conservation and restoration”, Moeslund et al (2017) , […]
My plan is to post random things, such as about the papers I have been reading, activities of the week, field trips etc. I’ll be basically showing how is it to be a PhD student and interesting stuff I have learned.
