Congratulations to Ornella Bertrand! Not only has she recently defended her PhD thesis under the supervision of Prof. Mary Silcox, but she also won the Robert Lynn Carroll Prize for an outstanding scientific contribution in Vertebrate Palaeontology by a PhD student or recent graduate at the annual Canadian Society of Vertebrate Paleontology meetings held this past week at UTM. The prize is in recognition of her talk entitled “Brain evolution in Rodentia and a deeper understanding of the ancestral condition of the brain for Euarchontoglires.”
