Haruka Wada, PhD
Department of Biological Sciences, Auburn University
Research Interests: Stress physiology, effects of stress during development on behavior and physiology, cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying stress phenotype
Current graduate student
Wonil Choi, PhD student
Research interests: Physiology, embryology, and immunology
Wonil has a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences and he is currently studying the effects of hypoxic and heat stresses on embryonic development on zebra finches.
Tori Coutts, PhD student
Research interests: Nutritional stress, gene expression, epigenetics
Tori is broadly interested in phenotypic plasticity and how animals respond to environmental changes. Using poor nutrition as a stressor, Tori is investigating how zebra finches respond behaviorally and physiologically, and the genetic mechanisms behind these responses.
