Kelly Lin Wuthrich

Biology PhD Candidate at Florida International University

I am a PhD student Florida International University in Dr. Christian Cox's lab, studying the role of thermal stress on phenotypic plasticity and gene expression reversibility in the Panamanian slender anole (Anolis apletophallus). I am interested in discerning the physiological, behavioral, and transcriptomic plasticity to acute heat stress and  the extent of reversibility.

I am a recent graduate of Binghamton University, State University of New York. I was a research assistant in Dr. Lindsey Swierk's lab where I worked on understanding the importance of coloration in water anole (Anolis aquaticus) antipredator adaptations and social signaling. I was a field intern in the summer of 2019 with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to gather data on levels of PFAS in Stewart State Forest, Newburgh NY. 


In my free time, I love to read, collect coral and shells at the beach,  cook, and play with my dog, Buster!
