A summary from her lab website:

Research in our lab focuses on the symbiotic factors that drive speciation, adaptation, and evolutionary diversification. We use ants and other insects to tease apart the factors that influence patterns of evolution – from the rise of the flowering plants, symbioses ants have with other insects and plants, and their gut-associated microbial community are all potential underlying factors that may have facilitated their ecological dominance in almost all terrestrial ecosystems.

1/13 at @ucdavis: Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar

Posting this email I received about an interesting talk on January 13.

Ironically, I have jury duty that AM so not sure if I can make it.

Dear Davis Community,

This coming Monday, January 13th, California Supreme Court Justice Mariano-Florentino Cuéllar will join The UC Davis Forums on the Public University and the Social Good in conversation regarding the legal implications of the challenges facing higher education today.

In this wide-ranging discussion moderated by Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Diversity Raquel Aldana, Justice Cuéllar will speak on the legal implications of the challenges facing higher education today. In light of recent national discussions over such issues as admissions policies and practices, Statements on Contributions to Diversity and Equity, immigration policies, and DACA, Justice Cuéllar will address how UC Davis might remain a leader in setting current policies and practices that are both true to its mission and legally defensible. Taking the long view from his years of experience working on issues of equity and excellence, Justice Cuéllar is in a unique position to reflect on the import of college access in the context of the California Master Plan for Higher Education.

 

This conversation-style Forum will take place Monday, January 13th, 2020 in the Multipurpose Room (2nd Floor) of the Student Community Center. The Forum is from 3 to 4:30 PM with a reception to follow.

Please RSVP on our Eventbrite page here.

For more information about this Forum, please visit the links or view the flyer below.

We look forward to seeing you there.
