Perfect starting at the University of Barcelona, Isabel is one of Leonardo awardees from the BBVA fundation. With this project, we will investigate the origin of insect wings using our favorite animal, the mayfly Cloeon dipterum.
In addition, our project to investigate the turbanate eyes of mayfly males has been also awarded by the Spanish Research Council.
Exciting times ahead!
Two new preprints are out!
