Congratulations Dr Darolti!

1 October 2019

Iulia Darolti completed her viva exam yesterday defending her thesis entitled ‘Evolutionary history of recombination on newly evolved sex chromosomes’. Many congratulations Dr Darolti on passing her viva exam and without the need for correction too! Well done Iulia.


Iulia did her PhD in the Mank lab.  Her examiners were Dr Julia Day (UCL GEE) and Dr Susan Johnston (Edinburgh).  Also in the photo is Iulia’s co-advisor, Dr Alison Wright.

We wish Iulia good luck in taking up a post-doc position in Vancouver where she will be moving to join Judith Mank’s group at the University of British Columbia.
