The Drew Lab at Columbia University


10403135_10152326399706845_4334812497099992446_nI 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.

Here you can learn about current research in my lab, the classes I teach, my current students, and our occasional musings. For my CV and lab contact information, please click here.



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

March Mammal Madness was a blast! This year we were on the front page of the Wall St. Journal, as well as being featured in Nature News!

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

The historical ecology collaborative papers are starting to come out. One in Ocean & Coastal Management (which I blogged about here) one in Bioscience, and one in Conservation Biology.
