Seeing out 2018

1 01 2019

This was our last lab meeting of 2018, held in Miijidaa (our new favourite place). As well as catching up and enjoying the pressure being off for a while, we said goodbye (or at least au revoir) to Aileen and Basma, who finished their coursework MSc degrees in December; we welcomed back Emma, who’s missed us since her defence; and we discussed this interesting piece on numbers as rhetoric, finding the author somewhat guilty of exaggeration: it was the press who misreported WWF’s figures, not WWF itself). It was a really fun meeting.

Right to left round the table: Misha (several weeks post defence now: more on that later!), Basma, Aimee, Emma, Aileen, Sam, Andrea, Michelle and Lindsey.
