KU researchers made strong showing at the Indonesian Southeast Asian Gateway to Evolution Biogeography meetings

Monday, October 30, 2017

Last month, with financial assistance from EEB and Biodiversity Institute, ten KU researchers (graduate students, faculty, BI staff, and EEB-BI postdoctoral researchers) made a strong showing at the 3rd triennial “Southeast Asian Gateway to Evolution (SAGE)” Biogeography meetings in Bogor Indonesia. Attended by members of Robert Moyle’s and Rafe Brown’s lab groups, the SAGE 2017 meeting showcased the global community’s most exciting research in Southeast Asian biogeography, systematics, macro-ecology, and geology (attended by ~450 representatives from > 30 countries). Rafe Brown and Rob Moyle delivered keynote addresses and EEB-BI students Scott Travers and Chan Kinn Onn won 1st and 3rd places, respectively, in the meeting’s student presentation competitions. Immediately following the meeting, as an additional outcome, EEB student Chan Kin Onn (who defends his dissertation November 10th) was offered a postdoctoral researcher position at the National University of Singapore—emphasizing the critical importance of meeting attendance, research presentation, and networking for graduate students in their final years at KU.
