Work can be done remotely from wherever you are, but you're also welcome to visit me in Cambridge and I'll take you to lunch in College or we could arrange a formal visit to t
I'm very excited to let you all know Simon's second paper will be out soon. It's on estimating elephant body size.

Simon has been offered a PhD place and will go on to do amazing things in science. I'm very happy I go to co-author his first papers
I'm very excited to be doing my second field trip of the project in March and April. I'll be attending the Savanna Science Network Meeting. I will also be meeting with collaborators and getting lots of data collection done. Should be a great trip!
I'm very pleased to say that I've won funding through the NERC Biomolecular Analysis Facility at Sheffield University to undertake genotyping of project samples there. Hopefully there will be plenty of samples after my two field trips this year!
