Back in Panamá, the blog lives again

*Pour lire cet article en français

After a prolonged period of hibernation, this blog lives again. Why was I not contributing? Well simply because I had way too much on my plate. August ended in a blur while I was trying to finish everything in Panamá. The fall was no less crazy. I had my research of course. I also took a teaching assistant position for the first time. I’m happy to say that my first batch of students were… awesome. We had the fun of our lives exploring global issues such as climate change. As usual, I was also involved in too many committees and organizations. But now that I’m back in Panamá, I will happily drown you with ridiculously long blog posts.

 For the past week, I have participated in a tropical biology field course with fellow graduate students. We study at the University of Illinois, at the Instituto de investigaciones científicas y servicios de alta tecnología (INDICASAT) and at McGill University. Throughout January, we will be travelling across Panamá to explore tropical environments. I’ll keep you posted. And of course, a bit more on my research will come out after the course. I will also update my vertebrate sighting list eventually as many new animals crossed my path.
