We are dedicated to promoting an inclusive and safe environment in our lab. We support all of the members of our team in realizing their full potential, and we value the creativity and productivity that comes from the meeting of diverse minds.
We will not tolerate harassment or discrimination of any kind in the lab or in the field.
Louis Bubrig is a PhD Student in the Biology Department. He received his master’s degree in biology from the University of Alabama where he worked on nematode dormant stage recovery. He joined the Gibson lab in Summer 2020 and plans to continue working on very small organisms and their complex strategies for survival and social interaction. firstname.lastname@example.org, website
Amanda Kyle Gibson (Mandy) is an assistant professor in Biology. She got her PhD in Evolution, Ecology and Behavior from Indiana University and worked as an NIH FIRST postdoctoral fellow at Emory University. Mandy studies the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions. She has a particular fondess for coevolution, the evolution of sex, virulence, nematodes, polyphagy, and biological control. email@example.com, (434) 243-2626. CV
Emma Kirschke is an undergraduate in the College of Arts and Sciences studying Biology who plans to pursue a career in Veterinary Medicine. She joined the lab in the Fall of 2019 and is interested in exploring the complex relationship between parasites and their hosts and how this relationship contributes to natural selection. firstname.lastname@example.org
Fabiane M. Mundim is a postdoctoral research associate. She received her Ph.D. in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida and worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Nevada, Reno. She is fascinated by biotic interactions, especially plant-herbivore, plant-nematode and multitrophic interactions. She is particularly interested in the strategies employed by plants to resist and/or tolerate biotic and abiotic stresses and on the role of plant secondary metabolites in these relationships. email@example.com
Anna Nguyen is an undergraduate in the College of Arts and Sciences studying Biology and Statistics. She joined the lab in the Spring of 2019 and is interested in using statistical methods to conduct research in ecological and evolutionary biology.
Akosua D. Odei is an undergraduate in the College of Arts and Sciences studying Biology. She plans to apply to medical school following graduation in order to pursue a career in medicine. She joined the lab in Fall 2020 and is interested in studying how genetic variation influences the spread of infectious diseases. firstname.lastname@example.org
Emily Tillet is an undergraduate student in the College of Arts and Sciences studying Biology and Global Public Health. She joined the lab in Summer 2019 and is interested in immunology and epidemiology. She’s super excited to learn about parasites of parasites and to exercise her green thumb growing eggplant hosts. email@example.com
