Masters Students
Tristan Kosciuch (tkoschiuch) 2020 – Present
Tristan is in the Bioinformatics program. He collected a stickleback data set from more than 40 lakes in summer 2020 to ask questions about landscape ecology and evolution by incorporating large-scale remote-sensed environmental data.

Bryan Galligan (bgalligan) 2020 – Present
Bryan is pursuing his Masters in Philosophy, but he has past and ongoing interest in ecology. I am advising him as he pursues questions about larval recruitment and dispersal by quahog clams in Narragansett Bay, particularly as abiotic conditions like hypoxia change.

Technicians
Samantha Swank (sswank) 2019 – Present
Sam is currently working on a review of the genetic basis of vertebrate limb loss and is collecting and analyzing data for a project on the inferred role of Pitx1 in squamate limb loss. Among many other things.
