of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
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.
January 2015: Congrats to Beck Wehrle on winning a Journal of Experimental Biology Travel Grant! This will allow Beck to continue his exciting research in Croatia.
December 2014: Our paper "More than one way to be an herbivore" is now "in press" in the journal Zoology. It should be out early in 2015. We will be delivering four talks and one poster at SICB in January. See you there!
September 2014: We have two new grants! UC MEXUS and NSF.
Earlier in the month, Samantha (Wright) Leigh 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.
May 2014: Welcome to our new graduate students, Alyssa Braciszewski and Samantha Wright! Congrats to Alyssa on winning a NSF GRFP award.
Are you an undergrad interested in doing research in our lab?
