Justin Bernstein, link to his Researchgate profile here
Justin comes to us from the Bauer lab at Villanova, where he has worked on squamate phylogenetics using molecular data. He started his PhD work at Rutgers Fall 2017 and is hot to trot on homalopsids.
Anthony (successfully!) finished his ms summer 2019 with me and will be expanding his work on mimetic systems for snakes for his dissertation work in the Ruane Lab.
Tianqi is an ms student currently co-advised with Peter Morin at Rutgers NB. Tianqi’s work is focused on urban snake populations.
Coming soon for 2020! Freshly minted PhD, postdoc Scott Travers, from Rafe Brown’s lab in Kansas will be joining the Ruane Lab via the Rutgers INSPIRE postdoc program to work on some poorly studied elapids with respect to systematics and venom evolution.
