Jennie, Colin, and Kevin were among the 20 FES Ph.D. students who participated in this year's "Doc Con" on October 4. The Doc Con is the main venue for doctoral students to showcase their research to the FES and Yale community. Jennie gave a fascinating presentation about the latest findings from her predation risk modeling work (look at all those fancy map layers!). Colin, a freshly minted Ph.D. candidate, presented a selection of his preliminary results and proposed research from his qualifying examination (congrats, Colin!). Kevin spoke about the methods he used to construct his movement model and some of the (extremely) preliminary results, which he plans to test in the field this winter. The conference was very well attended, with a packed house for the keynote presentation by Peter Kareiva of The Nature Conservancy. Great job to the Schmitz Lab presenters, we're looking forward to next year's event.
