Leakey Foundation grantee Alexandra Uhl, PhD candidate from the University of Tübingen in Germany, reports from the StEvE Conference.
EvE is a semester seminar series at the University of Tübingen with speakers who talk about their research in Evolution and Ecology. The StEvE conference is organized within the EvE for Students… So St(udents) and EvE = StEVE.
Each year StEvE is organized by a different department at the University of Tübingen,and this year it was organized the Johannes Krause and Alexander Herbig of thePaleogenetics Department. They did a great job, and everything ran smoothly. We had two days of very interesting talks from a wide range of research fields. Most of the talks were on PhD research, but a few were also on MA research. There were drinks and meals where everyone could mix and discuss the research.
The conference was inside the Paleontology Museum of Tübingen, which was fun in itself. This picture is from the poster session. (You can see some huge vertebrae!) Note the Leakey logo on my poster (lower right corner next to my contact info).
