This week we’re pleased to welcome a big group of new contributors to the blog. By way of introduction, I asked each of them to answer a few quick questions about him- or herself. —Jeremy

Who am I? Elin Videvall, PhD candidate in Evolutionary Biology

Where am I? I’m in the Molecular Ecology and Evolution Lab at Lund University, Sweden

What do I study? I study host-microbe interactions in avian systems using genomic and transcriptomic tools. In one of my projects I analyse changes in gene expression of both the avian host and its malaria parasite during an ongoing infection, and in another project I study gut microbiome composition and how it relates to fitness in ostriches.

What do I do when I am not studying? When I’m not working I like travelling, watching movies, enjoy good food and reading.
