Katherine A. Shaw, Visiting Scholar

Kat ShawI am a graduate student in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department at UConn. I share an interest with my advisor, Dr. Carl Schlichting, in the role phenotypic plasticity plays in evolution. I have specific interests in behavioral plasticity — particularly how flexible behaviors may affect population dynamics and produce population-level differences and geographic variation in behavior. I am exploring such mechanisms via investigations of geographic variation in sneaking propensity — a flexible and reversible (opportunistic) mating tactic in male threespine stickleback fish.
