Last Friday, Joshua Sammy left the Ecological Genetics & Conservation lab, to take up an MSc by Research at the University of York with Elva Robinson and Dan Franks. Joshua has spent the last year as an intern in the Ecological Genetics lab and has been working along side PhD student John Paul Kennedy learning molecular skills and assisting on a number of projects, including population genetic studies of mangroves. Over the past year, Joshua has made a massive contribution to the group and we will miss him. We wish him all the best in his masters research and hope he will come back and update us on his new project soon!
