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.
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. 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) 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.
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!!
Are you an undergrad interested in doing research in our lab?
