By Malin: Yesterday I had the pleasure to have the wonderful and inspiring Emily Baird and her PhD student Pierre Tichit visiting the lab from Stockholm University. It's always great to have the possibility to discuss ongoing projects with other scientists, and especially when they to have experience in insect behaviour, knowing the struggles flying insects can put you through. Sadly my flies wouldn't perform for my visitors (they are so far blaming stage fright or outright ignoring me), but hopefully Emily and Pierre will be back in the lab some other time when the flies will feel more like showing off their aerobatics.
The hoverfly vision group can be found at 2 locations: At Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia, and at Uppsala University in Sweden. To find out more about us and our research, browse through the pages.
