Carol Lee: Solving The Mystery of Terrestrialization
Dr. Carol Lee and her Taiwan host, Dr. Wen-Hsiung Li, are using novel genome sequence data, generated for the first time for 35 arthropod species, to determine patterns of evolution across habitats. From these data, we can infer adaptations over both macro- and micro evolutionary time scales to determine physiological mechanisms underlying adaptation to environmental change. Dr. Carol Lee currently is a full professor at the Center of Rapid Evolution (CORE) and Department of Zoology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. In the year of 2014-2015 she worked as a Fulbright Scholar at the Biodiversity Research Center at Academia Sinica in Taiwan.
