Paper challenges

Each year since 2016 the lab has participated in a ‘paper challenge’ over reading week (2016 and 2017) or at the end of the winter semester (2018 and 2019). Our philosophy so far has been to put our heads together and test big ideas with the data we have access to, primarily because some of these ideas integrate theory or methods that may not be possible for a single student’s thesis chapter. While this approach has produced some interesting ideas, we have learned what works and what doesn’t work. As of spring 2019, we are very close to publishing our 2017 paper challenge manuscript and we are super excited to share it! Check back here periodically for updates and links to our paper challenge manuscripts as they are published!
