Lisa Surber

EEB Graduate Student -- Advisor: Eva Fischer


Lisa is a PhD candidate in the Fischer lab and the Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior. She is generally interested in how organisms receive and respond to biotic & abiotic cues in their environment. She currently studies the dyeing poison frog, a species of poison frog whose tadpoles are aggressive & cannibalistic! She is interested in how the environment in which tadpoles live affects their development and behavior, and how these plastic changes may alter evolutionary trajectories. Aside from research Lisa is also passionate about mentoring undergraduate students, outreach, and teaching.
