Aaron Devine,  PhD Student


Science Interests: Responses to climate change, biogeography, phenotypic plasticity, conservation biology, ecological genomics, aquatic ecosystems, eco-evolutionary dynamics, and amphibians


Aaron’s interests broadly lie in organismal responses to climate change. More specifically, he has interests in how geographically isolated populations respond to climate change, and how these responses may vary across populations and species. He aims to support conservation strategies for populations experiencing change, and investigate of local adaptation and phenotypic plasticity, ecological genomics, and other processes that may be influenced by climate change.

Other Interests: Basketball, reading, eating food, and spending time with friends
