Janina is a PhD student at the Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen. Her project focusses on the reconstruction of the basal phylogeny of rove beetles (Staphylinidae) using molecular data, morphological traits as well as fossil records and is supervised by Alexey Solodovnikov and post doc Dagmara Zyla, with co-supervision from Fredrik Ronq... show more
Josh Jenkins Shaw
Josh is a PhD student at the Natural History Museum of Denmark at the University of Copenhagen. His project, supervised by Alexey Solodovnikov, as well as Chris Reid and Gerry Cassis from Sydney is focused on resolving the biogeography of Lord Howe Island using beetle phylogenetics, mostly the rove beetle subtribe Amblyopinina. His projects also involves systematic wo... show more
