Pasir Ris Park outing
Last friday, ReproLab organised a lab field trip to Pasir Ris park! We were happy to introduce Dr Moritz Gold, our visitor from ETH Zürich, to our local flora and fauna. Also spot Shao Yang, our incoming Honours student, and Rebecca, our new research assistant, joining us for the first time!
We explored both the mangrove boardwalk and the beach.
Here are some of the interesting critters we spotted:
The trip ended with lab lunch and a birthday surprise for Tyrone (who is now our PhD student). Happy (belated) Birthday Tyrone, may your PhD journey be fulfilling and rewarding. Till next time!
