Congrats to Dr. Kenny Askelson!

Kenny’s PhD defence last week went super well, and we are pleased to announce Dr. Kenneth Askelson!

Dr. Askelson’s dissertation is titled “Introgression, recombination, and genomic differentiation in a cryptic species complex of North American passerines.”

This week we are also celebrating the publishing of one of Kenny’s papers:

Askelson, K., G.M. Spellman, and D. Irwin. 2023. Genomic divergence and introgression between cryptic species of a widespread North American songbird. Molecular Ecology 32: 6839-6853. Link

Congrats Kenny!!
