We are saying goodbye to four people this Christmas. Kathy Darragh finished her PhD earlier in the year and is moving on to a postdoc in Berkeley. Nicol Rueda has been visiting from Colombia and will be returning to finish her PhD in Bogota. Anniina Maatila has been visiting from Helsinki and will be going back to finish her postdoc fellowship. Meanwhile Eva van der Heijden is off to Panama for a STRI fellowship and will be applying for PhD positions. Good luck to everyone, its been a pleasure working together!
