Jennifer Dougherty

Jen joined the lab in Spring 2020 as a Master’s student.  Jen graduated from Delaware Valley University with a degree in Zoo Science and then worked at the USGS National Fish Health Research Lab In Leetown, WV.  Her primary research interests are in the ecology and evolution of invasive species, but she has an interest in pursuing new avenues of research integrating behavior, physiology, and genetics.  Currently, Jen is looking at how environmental contaminants impact behavior and movement of invasive species using Gambusia holbrooki as a study system.


If you are interested in joining the lab as an MSc or PhD student, contact Dr. Culumber.  We are currently looking for two students who could start in Fall 2021.
