WHO WE ARE
Hugo F. Gante is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at Indiana State University. Hugo received his undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Lisbon (Portugal) and his PhD in Biology from Arizona State University. He is interested in the mechanisms responsible for speciation and adaptation to the environment, understanding how the genotype is translated to a phenotype, and doing something about species conservation.
Niladri Mondal is interested in understanding mechanisms governing biological diversification, including genome evolution and the origin of morphological novelties. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Midnapore College and a Master’s in Zoology from Vidyasagar University (India). His PhD research uses fishes as models to look at different aspects of body size evolution.
Peyton Blount is interested in genetics, physiology and cell biology. She received her BS in molecular/cellular biology from the University of North Florida. Her Master’s research is primarily focused on generating fish reporter lines through Tol2-mediated transgenesis and CRISPR-Cas9 knock-outs, which will be used to study color patterning and cardiogenesis. She is also affiliated with the Schwab Lab at ISU.
Ben Prindle is an undergraduate Biology Major student in the Department of Biology. Ben has an interest in ichthyology, and marine and freshwater biology.
