Congratulations to the second cohort of Stanford Science Fellows!
This program for postdoctoral researchers aims to support top scholars with diverse perspectives and backgrounds who are conducting award-winning research in the fields of the life sciences, mathematics and physical sciences.
The group includes two who are Biology focused:
Stepfanie Aguillon plans to study the genetic basis of mate choice behavior in a hybridizing fish system. She will be mentored by Molly Schumer.
Dakota (Cody) McCoy will research biological adaptations related to light. She will be mentored by Jenn Dionne in materials science but will be collaborating with colleagues at Hopkins Marine Station, particularly Steve Palumbi, on some work with coral.
