Sonali Verma recently completed a three-month internship in our lab. Prior to this, she graduated with a double master’s degree in Physics, which was divided between France (Université Paris-Sud) and Italy (Università degli studi di Ferrara). She worked on two projects while in our lab. One (shorter) project involved compiling data on small mammals from Victoria in Australia for the lab’s undetected extinction project. The second project, for which she worked with post-doctoral fellow Tak Fung, involved conducting computational simulations of neutral models in R for the lab’s island biogeography project.
