Postdoctoral Research Associate, Fuxjager Lab

Broadly interested in how muscle physiology constrains performance in behavioral displays of animals as well as how hormonal and molecular regulation of physiology leads to variation in behavioral displays. 

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Brainerd Lab

Corrine specializes in the analysis of the biomechanics and functional morphology of vertebrate animals, primarily fish. The main emphasis is to achieve fundamental insight into the biomechanics, and how this is influenced by variation in the anatomical components. Most current research focuses on the function of the head's skeletal components of fish during feeding.

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Kartzinel Lab

Interested in understanding how wildlife can thrive in unprotected landscapes, specifically using spatial and molecular ecology to determine how conservation strategies can be designed.

Senior Research Associate, Tatar Lab

Aging regulation by non-autonomous signaling from Drosophila gut enteroendocrine cells.

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Roberts Lab

Samantha studies biomechanics and the functional anatomy of the skull, primarily in fish. She is interested in constraints on evolution and broadly how complex mechanical systems work. 

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Kartzinel Lab

Broadly interested in how animals respond to environmental change, and more specifically in spatial and temporal diet-microbiome interactions, and how this may influence host health and fitness.

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Huerta-Sanchez Lab

Mia's work is focused on critical analyses of how genomic sex differences claims are made, how gendered effects can impact the inference of sex-biased human demographic history, and in applications of coalescent theory to detecting admixture and introgression.

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Ramachandran Lab

Carlos' work is focused on detecting local adaptation in human populations under complex admixture histories or extreme demographic changes, with special interest in adaptations of the immune system to local pathogens, dietary changes and environmental stresses.

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Kellner Lab

Research focuses on incorporating computer science techniques into ecological problems. Current work analyzes machine learning models that predict aboveground biomass density based on forest structure data measured by a spaceborne lidar.

Postdoctoral Research Associate, Brainerd Lab

Kelsey T. Stilson is a postdoctoral fellow in the Brainerd Lab and an anatomy instructor at the Alpert School of medicine. They study mastication (chewing) in the Didelphis virginiana (the opossum) using biplanar videoradiography. Kelsey also studies teeth as sensory structures, with a focus on nerve distribution within tooth roots and the implications of this distribution for chewing behaviors.

Argentina National Scientific and Technological Research Council International Postdoctoral Fellow

My field of interest is disease ecology at the interface of wildlife and domestic species. I work on identifying diseases (viral, bacterial, and parasitic) circulating in diverse mammals to understand the social and ecological conditions that could lead to spillover infections that harm humans and livestock.  

Swedish Research Council International Postdoctoral Fellow, Kartzinel Lab

Dr. Videvall wants to increase our understanding of how animals and microbes interact and coevolve. Her research explores microbiomes and pathogens of wildlife, investigating questions such as how microbial communities are assembled, how they develop over time, and how they influence their hosts.
