Congratulations to Alex Rego for successfully defending his Master’s thesis on the evolutionary dynamics and genetics of adaptation to a marginal host plant by Callosobruchus maculatus.
Alex has been in the lab since his time as an undergraduate at USU. His thesis work has already resulted in two stellar papers (Rego et al., 2019 and Rego et al. 2020). Alex is now continuous his PhD studies with Rike Stelkens at the University of Stockholm.
