Welcome Callum McDiarmid!

Callum is a PhD student from Macquarie University in Australia and will be visiting the Fuller Lab for six months on a Fulbright scholarship. His PhD research investigates speciation using the long-tailed finch Poephila acuticauda, encompassing the naturally occurring hybrid zone in the Kimberley region, detailed behavioural and physiological experiments in captivity, and genomics. He will be working with Daniel Hooper and Irby to further illuminate the genomic basis of sperm morphology in this system, as well as to provide a detailed examination of hybrid composition within the hybrid zone.
