Tanmay Dixit has received a Rosemary Grant Award (2021), an award which contributes to research costs for PhD students towards the latter part of their PhD. This will allow him to enhance his dissertation work by conducting more fieldwork on the coevolution of egg patterns in cuckoo finches and their hosts. Congratulations, Tanmay! And a massive thank you to the SSE for their wonderful support.
