MeaseyLab Publications

What are MeaseyLab publications? Simply, these are papers that my lab conceives at Lab meetings. We collectively assemble the data, conduct the analyses and write manuscripts together. We have one project that we conduct each year that is inspired by who we are, what we do and what we discuss at our Lab meetings. It is an instructive process for post-graduate students who are already engaged in their own research but through these Lab publications learn the additional skills of collaboration and organisation to do research together. We also try to make projects fun, as we believe that this is at the heart of all good research.
