As for our next lab meeting on Monday 25th January (2010) we will join forces with the Svensson lab. Time is our usual at 09:00, and location is also the usual (Argumentet). We will discuss some relevant insect flight papers that Sophia will distribute.
It should also be mentioned that Melissa Bowlin has accepted a faculty position at the University of Michigan Dearborn, and we wish her all the best of luck there. But before that Melissa will be with us until August to finish lots of interesting projects.
Next week is going to be eventful in other respects as well. On Thursday at 14:00 we will have a mini symposium on the aerodynamics of flight. Main speaker is Dr. Bret Tobalske (see image), University of Montana, who will talk on hummingbird flight, with a few other talks from AFL reps. Bret Tobalske is here also to act as faculty opponent on Per Henningsson's thesis defense, taking place on Friday 29 January at 10:00, Blue Lecture Hall.
