Javier Santos Santos (Universitat de Barcelona, Erasmus Mundus Nova Domus PhD)
I am an exchange research fellow from the University of Barcelona (Spain). I will be performing biomechanics (high-speed video, EMG, sonomicrometry, PIV) to discriminate differences in various aspects of performance to test evolutionary hypotheses in frogs.

Trina Du (McGill University, PhD)
I’m a PhD student from McGill visiting the lab for the fall 2015 semester. While I’m here, I’ll be doing a histochemical study of fin and axial musculature in Polypterus. I am interested in knowing how fibre types, and oxidative and glycolytic capacity change when fish are raised in an aquatic vs terrestrial environment.
