Current Undergraduates (in order of appearance in the lab!)
Rivulus behavioral quantification; examining differences in behavioral phenotype arising from changes in rearing environment; collaborating with Adam Fuller on his graduate project.
Cloning and gene expression of inhibin; slated to work on fine-tuning simulation models of dominance hierarchy formation in social animals in collaboration with Tom Bertalan and Chelsea "Raulie" Raulerson; will collaborate with Matt May, Mark Nuttall, Richard Morris, and Alexander Thompson on a project examining the costs of aggression.
Learning the ropes and poised to begin collaborating on rivulus projects and with Matthew May, Mark Nuttall, Richard Morris, and Robertson Pearce on a study investigating the costs of animal combat
Chelsea "Raulie" Raulerson
Will collaborate with Robertson Pearce and Tom Bertalan on refining a simulation model that examines the development of social hierarchies in animals
Is collaborating with Adam Fuller on developmental plasticity of behavior in the mangrove rivulus. In addition, Annie is developing a study to investigate the factors that might cause hermaphroditic rivulus to lay unfertilized eggs, thereby facilitating 'natural' outcrossing in the mangrove rivulus.
Collaborating with Mark Garcia's team on brain gene expression patterns in anolis lizards following social experience.
