As you might already know, this year's PG speaker will be Vanessa Ezenwa. She is Associate Professor at the Odum School of Ecology and at the Department of Infectious Diseases, the University of Georgia. She is a disease ecologist specialising in the effects of host behaviour on parasitism and, vice versa, on the role of parasites in the evolution of host behaviour. She also works on the community ecology of infectious disease; her main study system is represented by ungulates of the United States and sub-Saharan Africa. (http://ezenwalab.uga.edu/ )

Her visit is scheduled for Friday 8th December, when she will be giving a talk at 3pm in LT1, followed by the usual happy hour. I will send details about her talk later on, but if you would like to meet with her, she will be around pretty much the entire day. I set up a spreadsheet, so if you wish to meet with her just sign up by December 1st and we will work out a schedule.
