Michelle wins the Vogel Award at SICB 2018

Congratulations to PhD student Michelle Graham, who won the Steven Vogel Award for the best student poster in the Division of Comparative Biomechanics at this year's SICB conference! Michelle's poster was titled "Gap distance affects the behavior and precision of movement of flying snakes", was also co-authored by Dr. Bruce Jayne of the University of Cincinnati. This is the lab's second award in the DCB BSP competition — last year Isaac Yeaton won for his talk on flying snakes. Click here if you'd like to download the poster as a pdf.

SICB 2018 San Francisco

This week we attended the annual meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology in San Francisco. Although there are many flavors of biology here, about a quarter of the conference is related to comparative biomechanics or functional morphology, making it the premier venue for such topics in the US. Sharri and Khaled gave really good talks, and Michelle presented a poster in the DCB award competition (and won! More in next post). See all of our abstracts here (search author: Socha).
