Michelle Dugas

For all of the weighty topics of Michele’s lab meetings (evolution of culture, revenge, extremism), my strongest memories are most often punctuated by laughter and food. Whether sharing bagels and schmear, pizza, or kitfo, Michele’s lab meetings were more than an exchange of ideas—they were an opportunity to build community and friendship. I am forever grateful for those moments and, while I know Michele’s move will be a loss to the UMD community in more ways than one, I am excited for the students at Stanford who will get to benefit from the same warmth and thought leadership. Congrats, Michele and may the best be yet to come!
