I am a faculty member in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Biology at Columbia University. Here, I teach, conduct research on the evolution and conservation of marine biodiversity, and run our MA in Conservation Biology program.
Our new paper using population genetics to quantify reef connectivity in Fiji, lead by former MA student Erin Eastwood, and Senior Honor’s Student Elora López is out in Scientific Reports
The work I’ve done on the intersection of race, gender and the Impostor Syndrome has been covered in Nature
Operation Productive December went off well, with me finishing up my class of 18 students in Ichthyology. I also got one paper submitted with undergraduate student Karen Bao, and have a few more that hopefully will be sent off soon. Overall 2015 was a very productive year with 7 papers out from the Drew lab.
The summer of planting data papers is starting to bear fruit. I have a new paper in PLOS One with Ruth Hufbauer and Katie Amatangelo, looking at direct vs. indirect anthropogenic forces in structuring reef fish communities in Papua New Guinea
