Current

Goggy Davidowitz

Interest:

I study ecological and evolutionary physiology of insects. Of late, my focus is on the functional physiology of nutrient allocation tradeoffs among body parts and life history traits

Graduate Students

Eileen Guitierrez

Interest:

My research is on the role of body size in aspects of Aedes aegypti population fitness, such as age structure and first-time blood-feeding and reproduction rates. 
 

Cristina Francois

Interest:

My dissertation research is focused on the ecological costs and benefits of larval color variation in the white-lined sphinx moth, Hyles lineata

Post Docs

Interest:

My interest in the effects of environmental variation on trait evolution drives my research. I use an interdisciplinary approach to study these effects, using tools from behavioral ecology, physiology and anatomy, quantitative genetics, and evolutionary biology.

Trevor Ledbetter

Interest:

I am currently investigating the caloric differences within the thorax muscles and chitin between differing diet treatments of Manduca sexta to determine developmental differences.

Alonso Favela

Interest:

Currently I am looking at resource allocation patterns in Manduca sexta  that were reared in a nutritionally limited environment with the purpose of examining how nutrition and sex play a role in development

Kirsten Corral

Interest:

I am exploring where resources are reacllocated after surgically removing wing imaginal discs.
