Welcome to the Landscape Ecology and Spatial Analysis (LESA) lab, directed by Dr. Yolanda Wiersma. Please use the links above to navigate my site. Here’s the LESA Lab News for this month.

May 2020

I facilitated a few online discussion in April about online teaching, which we have collectively developed into an online blog post. You can read it here.

Despite that we are all working from home during the global COVID-19 pandemic, things are still happening at the LESA Lab. Here are some highlights from recent weeks:

  • Congratulations to Patrick on passing his MSc Thesis examination! He’s now off to start a PhD at Waterloo with Andrew Trant.
  • Lab almuna Tegan received positive reviews on a recent journal submission (chapter 2 of her thesis) as well as an acceptance of a paper not related to her thesis (completed as part of a contract she got right after finishing her MSc)
  • Travis has submitted a couple of papers from his thesis.
  • Travis and Bella have prepared exciting presentations for the IALE Virtual Meeting

Also, the IALE-North America Virtual meeting happens this month! If you are curious what a virtual meeting will look like, check out this video tour of our “Virtual Venue“. As well you can watch our “Kick off Webinar“. All other conference events are behind a paywall (you can register as late as May 10).

And a final note from a lab alumnus – Shad Mahlum, who successfully defended his PhD in Norway this week. He had to defend remotely, which called for an specific dress code! Congratulations Dr. Mahlum! Shad finished his MSc in the LESA lab back in 2013.
