Overall, I seek to understand the conditions under which adaptive transgenerational plasticity occurs. My research focuses on the impact that different types of predator cues (visual, olfactory) have on the next generation's fitness. A secondary interest lies in the connection between predator exposure and immune response.

I seek to understand the transgenerational effects of widely used chemicals used in common herbicides, specifically glyphosate. My research focuses on the impact of differing concentrations of glyphosate on early life and developmental stages in rivulus mangrove fish (Kryptolebias marmoratus). I wish to uncover the endocrine disrupting effects of this chemical and the implications for the parent and offspring's fitness.
TRUTH MULLER (MS student)
I seek to understand the transgenerational effects of social interactions between conspecifics. My current research focuses on the impacts of competition between K. marmoratus parents on their offspring. I also have strong interests. environmental education, science communication, and the behavior and development of marine invertebrates..
