KASEY FOWLER-FINN, PH.D.

Kasey is interested in the roles of

plasticity, genetics, and

environmental variation in

evolution. Her interests

include adaptation to global warming, the evolution of mating and social behavior, predator-prey interactions, and geographic variation in phenotype.

 

See the research and publications pages for more information on her current and past projects. Download her CV.

GRADUATE STUDENTS

Dowen Jocson

Master's Student

 

Dowen is working on her M.S.

degree currently researching how

temperature influences female

mating preferences and male mating signals in treehoppers. Her research interests also include pollinators, evolutionary ecology, and other insects.

William Shoenberger

Ph.D. Student

 

William began his Ph.D. at SLU in

the Fall of 2015 after completing

his undergraduate in Biochemistry

at the University of Missouri. In the Fowler-Finn Lab, William is studying the evolution of complex social behaviors in arachnids and insects
