Spanning from the molecular to the whole-organism level, research in my laboratory is focused on the energy acquisition strategies of organisms.  In short, I am interested in understanding how organisms make a living and the consequences of different energy acquisition strategies for ecosystem fluxes.  



News:


September 2014: We have two new grants!  UC MEXUS and NSF.  For the latter, we are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow with Next Generation molecular experience (at the bench, and with bioinformatics).  Here is a link to the application instructions: http://german.bio.uci.edu/Jobs_1.html

Earlier in the month, Samantha Wright was the lead on an episode of "SciGirls" (a PBS Kids show) that was filmed in our lab and at Crystal Cove State Park.  Look for the episode to air in the spring of 2015.

We had four presentations at the Southwest Organismal Biology meeting on 20 Sept.  Excellent job to all! American Physiological Society meeting is next (5-8 October).

May 2014: Welcome to our new graduate students, Alyssa Braciszewski and Samantha Wright! Congrats to Alyssa on winning a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship!!

February 2014: The aquarium slots were filled.  Welcome to Amy Liang and Nasim Faryabi!  Congrats to undergrads Ritika Agnihotri and David Vu for receiving UROP funding for their projects!
