Tinh Ton awarded NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

Graduate student Tinh Ton was awarded a competitive 2018 NSF Graduate Research Fellowship that will support his work studying KEYSTONEin in relation to mussel physiology and behavior. Congratulations Tinh!

Congratulations Dr. Davis!

Todgham lab member Brittany Davis successfully completed her PhD in the Animal Biology graduate group. Her dissertation “Susceptibility of Juvenile fishes to environmental change: Linking physiological responses to behavioral outcomes” focused on research conducted all the way from Antarctica to the California coast at the Bodega Marine lab to the local Bay Delta estuaries. We wish Britt the best of luck as she begins her new job at the California Department of Water Resources.

Erin Flynn awarded research funding!


PhD student Erin Flynn received a Jastro Shields research award from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Studies for her Antarctic studies exploring impacts of global climate change on Antarctic dragonfish eggs. Erin also was awarded a fellowship for next year from the Graduate Group of Ecology at UC Davis.

Congratulations Erin!

Todgham lab students present at UC Davis undergraduate conference

Brigitte Clark (L) and Alexandra Resnick (R) presented their research at the 27th Annual Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Conference (link). Brigitte shared her work on identifying ploidy (genome duplication) in white sturgeon while Alex discussed her research on the effects of climate change on the behavior of juvenile Antarctic fish.

Congratulations to Madeline!

201512_MadelineisaMasterTodgham Lab member Madeline Kinsey has successfully completed her Master of Science degree with the Animal Biology Graduate Group. Her thesis examined the effects of temperature predictability on limpet thermal performance under natural tidal cycles. This work took her from the intertidal at Fort Ross to programming arduinos for her limpet habitats at SFSU Romberg Tiburon Center to many colorful assays in our lab here at UC Davis. More congratulations are in order as she has also been selected as a 2016 California Sea Grant State Fellow. She will work with the CA State Parks Natural Resources Division to help refine strategies and policies to better address climate change within the coastal parks. Great job, Madeline!

Welcome new Grad Students!!
