Congratulations to Kate, who is now Dr. McLean! Kate’s dissertation included some chapters on the Daphnia-parasite system, plus a chapter on SARS-CoV-2 in Michigan. Kate defended their dissertation last week and is now in the process of doing final edits. Next up for Kate will be a postdoc studying the effects of global change on infectious disease dynamics. It’s a really exciting position: watch this space for more info after everything is official! And congrats, Kate!
