Zoë is an MSc student in the Wright and Barrett labs studying the evolution of epigenetics on plant sex chromosomes. She knits, rock climbs, dragon boats, talks to her plants, and would love you to stop by to say hi (or just to vent and sample from her stress chocolate drawer).

tinygeorgia.jpegGeorgia Henry

Georgia is a PhD student in the Stinchcombe lab studying the quantitative genetics of range limits in morning glories. She can often be found in the greenhouse wondering when her plants will finally stop flowering. She previously worked as an award-winning, nationally competitive barista. She takes no shit.

Ashley is a glyptodont.pngAshley Reynolds (ROM)

Ashley is a PhD student in the Evans lab, where she studies the growth dynamics and ecology of living and extinct cats – especially sabre-toothed cats! She’s a big fan of science communication and promoting diversity and equity in STEM fields. When she’s not in the lab, you can often find her drinking a beer or watching copious amounts of television. Feel free to say hello if you’re a ROM student!

Me in greenhouseJames Santangelo (UTM)

James is a PhD candidate co-supervised by Marc Johnson and Rob Ness at UTM. He is currently using theoretical, empirical and genomic approaches to examine parallel adaptive and non-adaptive evolutionary responses to urban environments using the model plant white clover (Trifolium repens). Read more about his work here: jssantangelo.com

seanSean Anderson (UTSC)

Sean is a PhD student in the Weir lab, where he uses tropical vertebrate clades (birds and freshwater fishes) to test hypotheses about the effect of macroecological variables on evolution, including the rate and mode of lineage diversification. He is particularly interested in how new diversity forms on continents, where there is no “original paucity”. Awful sun hats bring him no shame. He is known to enjoy reading Golf Quarterly.
