Sara is currently an undergraduate student, majoring in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. She is also a member of the varsity Women’s Tennis Team. Her research interests include understanding the interaction between genotype and phenotype, as well as understanding how nutrition influences this relationship. Her senior thesis project will investigate how genotypic variation inDrosophila influences metabolites and their pathways, specifically glucose metabolism.
Minjia is currently an undergraduate student, majoring in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Her research interests include investigating the relation between genotype and phenotype, particularly in response to dietary changes in glucose. Her senior thesis research explores how genotypic variation and adaptation influence fitness levels and metabolic processes.
Michael is a junior visiting from U.C. Berkeley where he will complete his undergraduate degree (before returning to Princeton for Graduate School – we hope!).
Brent is currently an undergraduate student, he will major in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. He is also a member of the varsity Men’s Track and Field team. His research interests include understanding what drives phenotypic variation in populations and the relationship between genotype and phenotype. His senior thesis project is investigating how genotypic variation in Drosophila influences the trainability of flies undergoing an endurance exercise training regimen, with a specific focus on exercise-induced mitochondrial biogenesis.
