Statistical Wizard

While we were in Delft, we had the good fortune of getting to spend some more time with Veronica Minaya, the Master's student at UNESCO-IHE who recently completed her thesis...Land use influence on the benthic macroinvertebrate communities of streams in Nyangores and Amala tributaries of Mara River, Kenya (April, 2010).

Check out her thesis when you get a chance.  The statistics are quite impressive...and above me.  We have never seen anybody work harder in the field than Veronica and her classmate Fred Omengo.  They spent several weeks climbing through the Mau Forest in the rain, covered in mud, sampling in a hail storm, sleeping in a primary school, chased by forest elephants, etc...
