I have decided to start a feature called ‘where are they now?’ – this will be about past students, and what they are up to these days. A few years ago we had a keen, enthusiastic, and talented undergraduate student in our laboratory – Brigette Zacharczenko. Many of you many know her by her popular on-line persona “weird bug lady” – the blogger and seller of amazing plush creatures. She is AKA “the caterpillar wrangler” I have one of her creations next to me in my office (yes, I am very lucky):
Brigette is now doing graduate school at the University of Connecticut in David Wagner’s laboratory. Although we were sad to see her go, she left us a wonderful gift – our very own laboratory Logo. You can go to Cafe Press at this link: http://www.cafepress.com/ecologylab and buy your very own t-shirt, mug, mouse pad, etc with our logo in place. Really, we all MUST own a piece of Arthropod Ecology branding. Perhaps a tattoo next? Any takers?
