A visit from Dr Rubén Milla, Rey Juan Carlos University, Madrid.

We were pleased to host Dr Rubén Milla this week, who flew over from Rey Juan Carlos University (Madrid) to give a seminar and meet with the Origins of Agriculture team. Rubén works on ecological strategies in crops and their wild relatives, therefore it was very useful to get together to discuss our current projects. It was great to hear all about Rubén’s research, and he was especially excited to meet two eminent Sheffield ecologists – Professor Phil Grime and Dr John Hodgson. This visit was funded by a Santander travel grant, which was awarded to Dr Catherine Preece, in order to facilitate collaboration between the two research groups. Catherine is excited to be heading out to Madrid in the spring to continue the collaboration!
