Dr. Jennifer Neuwald

  • Former Postdoctoral Associate
Jennifer was a postdoctoral fellow. Her PhD work focused on the temporal changes in population genetic dynamics of the eastern collared lizard, Crotaphytus collaris collaris, in response to forest fire management.

At the Valenzuela lab she worked on an eco-genomics project to study the effect of fluctuating temperature on the expression of genes involved in gonadogenesis in TSD turtles.

Her work was funded by the National Science Foundation (IOS 0743284 to N. Valenzuela).

Jennifer is now a Research Associate at the Department of Fish and Wildlife Conservation Biology at Colorado State University.
