The lab is just getting started! See the Join Us page for information on current positions!

PI:

Adam M. Siepielski

I am an ecologist and evolutionary biologist. Much of my work focuses on trying to understand how interactions within and between species evolve and the consequences of this evolution for population regulation and the structure of biological communities. My work integrates ideas and approaches from population and community ecology, behavioral ecology and evolutionary biology. I use both theoretical and empirical studies. I principally work with damselflies (predatory aquatic insects closely related to dragonflies) in lake and pond systems.

Postdoctoral Associates:

Mabel Serrano – Mabel is a recent undergraduate from U of A. She is helping get a number of lab projects up and running.

Undergraduates:

Michael (“Tulley”) Chrietzberg – Tulley is interesting in developing a study focused on natural selection. He found the right lab for this!

Grayson McReynolds – Grayson is an honors student developing a thesis project focused on how  temperature variation affects predator-prey interactions

Joy Senn  – Joy joined the lab this summer and worked on the latitudinal gradient study. She also really likes E. vesperum.

Sara Vowell – Sara is joining the lab soon.

Madison Caldwell – Madison is joining the lab as an honors student.

Lab Alumni:

Kate Boersma – former post-doc, currently Assistant Professor of Biology at USD.

Madison Pitts – Madison was an honors student who developed her thesis project on how temperature affects population regulation through competitive interactions. She is likely swimming with Manta rays somewhere…
