Maria Akopyan, PhD candidate

Congratulations to Maria Akopyan, co-advised in the Therkildsen and Zamudio labs, for completing her A-exam today! Maria’s thesis focuses on the genomics of local adaptation of the silverside (Menidia) across a steep environmental gradient along the eastern US coast. We look forward to the amazing findings that will come from her work.

As is tradition in EEB, she dented a lab ceiling tile with a champagne cork!
