KINSEY M. BROCK, Ph.D.

I am a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology at the University of California, Berkeley sponsored by Dr. Ian Wang (UC Berkeley, USA) and Dr. Panayiotis Pafilis (National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece). My research interests are primarily aimed at identifying correlates and mechanisms of phenotypic evolution in reptiles, with a particular emphasis on color polymorphism.

My postdoc research is focused on the evolution of repeated phenotypes in color polymorphic island lizards. My fieldwork largely takes places in the Cycladic islands where I spend a lot of my time chasing Aegean wall lizards. Much of my work is at the intersection of ecology, evolution, phylogenetics, biogeography, and art!
