On the 29th of September Aleksandra Łukasiewicz successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled “Factors affecting the intensity of sexual conflict in acardi mites (Acari: Acaridae)”. Ola made a tremendous work, which is demonstrated by the fact that three chapters of this thesis have been already published in peer-reviewed journals (Science Advances, Evolution and BMC Evolutionary Biology).
The defence took place in the on-line mode, which did not stop us from fascinating scientific discussion, followed by more informal, traditional celebration. That was a great day for the lab! Congratulations Ola!
