Congratulations Dev for getting into the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in Evolutionary Biology with a full scholarship. Dev is one of the founding UG student members of our lab and pulled off some super cool studies to seek evolutionary explanations of “why males and females differ in their immunity and disease responses” (This study is now published in BMC Biology). He also pioneered the microbial evolution paradigm in our lab and has been leading a large team effort since then to understand various ecological drivers of pathogen evolution.
While we now prepare to bid a fond farewell to Dev and we are also super excited about his bright future as an evolutionary biologist. Way to go Dev!!!!
