Nematode, quoth the raven: thanks and farewell to Dr Matt Hill

nematodesAnytime you think you’re having a bad week, remember this: you could be infected with entomopathogenic nematodes.

Thanks and farewell to Dr Matt Hill aka @InsectEcology for a great week of insect ecology and evolution from the Western Cape of South Africa, which took us into the realms of scientific publication and review; through the finer points of life as an ECR (as distinct from an ECSR, which is a rock band from Melbourne); around the socioeconomoecological mores of eating insects for food; and down this great big tree-lined hill. If you missed any of Matt’s week catch up on Storify: Part 1 | Part 2 We wish Matt all the best with his paper submissions and in getting his R’s into gear. Keep following him @InsectEcology, and if you see him at INTECOL 2013 next week, buy him a beer. Not Castle Lager. Noooo not that.


Next week: Dr Simon O’Toole of the Australian Astronomical Observatory, aka @drsimmo.


James is a recovering scientist and escaped postdoc who works in research management at the University of Otago, New Zealand. He's now retired from active @RealScientists duty, after serving from the project's beginnings in 2013 through to mid 2015. When not managing research, surviving #PlanetParenthood or pretending not to be an expat Australian in the Deep South of NZ, he tweets @theotherdrsmith.
