There's a doctor in the house! So happy and proud to announce that Blake Dickson successfully (remotely) defended his PhD disseration! Blake learned and applied some serious quantitative methods in his thesis: CT scanning, 3D modeling, finite element analysis, pseudolandmark geometric morphometrics, evolutionary modeling, performance surfaces, and adaptive lanscapes. Phew!
Many thanks to the committee: Jim Hanken, George Lauder, and David Polly.
