I am very happy to welcome Marisa Martín Cerezo, a new PhD student in Huddersfield, with whom I will be working on the Apodemus and Mustela projects. Marisa came to The North from Madrid, where she did her Masters on mtDNA-based phylogeography of snails from the Caenogastropoda clade, and subsequently worked on extremophilic lichens Circinaria gyrosa (in outer space!). She also studied invasive biology of fire ants Solenopsis geminata at Galapagos Islands (!). Unfortunately, she supports the other club from Madrid, but hey, nobody’s perfect.
Welcome, Marisa :-)
