NUS-Overseas Graduate Scholar awarded first prize at Biology 11, Switzerland

Biology 11 was the joint meeting organized by the Swiss Zoological Society, the Swiss Botanical Society, and the Swiss Systematics Society early this month. This annual meeting is aimed at bringing together biologists devoted to study ecology, evolution, behaviour and systematics in across various taxonomic groups, ranging from Orangutans to Cyanobacteria.

This year, Nalini Puniamoorthy, a recipient of the NUS- Overseas Graduate Scholarships, was awarded the top prize for best talk out of nearly 30 student presentations. Nalini is a doctoral candidate at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Studies at University of Zurich. Her talk entitled “Geographic reversal of sexual size dimorphism in a dung fly, Sepsis punctum” represents a part of her doctoral research, which is aimed at investigating the morphological and behavioral divergence in reproductive traits among widespread species.
