Our warmest congratulations to TEE Lab's postdoc fellow, Dr. Chiew Li Yuen from the Institute for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ITBC), University of Sabah (UMS) for being awarded the Best Science PhD Thesis Award. Her research project "Dung Beetle and Mammal Interaction Networks Across a Multi-use Landscape in Sabah, Malaysia" was supervised by TEE Lab PI Dr. Eleanor Slade.

Here are some photos from her PhD graduation ceremony where she was joined by her family and friends.

Following her PhD, Dr. Chiew became a postdoc researcher with the TEE Lab and is now researching if riparian buffers are a source of rhinoceros beetles, a major pest in oil palm plantations.
