Casey Richards

Office: Erman 010:
I study how species in marine systems respond and adapt to shifting ecosystem processes, how these shifts influence community genetic variability and population structure, and impacts on ecosystem productivity as a result from climate change.

Sofia Sheikh

Office: Erman 010:
I am broadly interested in using genetic/genomic tools to study how species interactions drive diversification, with a particular focus on parasitic and herbivorous insects.

Dylan Sosa

Office: Zoology 303A:
I integrate computational genomic analyses and molecular experiments to investigate several aspects of de novo gene evolution: molecular mechanisms that give rise to these new genes, their functions and phenotypic effects; and intralocus sexual conflict.

Hsiang-Yu Tsai

Office: Zoology:
My main research interests are behavioral ecology and population ecology. Through the empirical experiments, my goal is to understand how organisms react to the changing world and further give a framework of species’ vulnerability to climate change.
