KINSEY M. BROCK, Ph.D.
Starting July 1, 2021, I am a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biology at the University of California, Berkeley sponsored by Dr. Ian Wang (UC Berkeley) and Dr. Panayiotis Pafilis (National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece). My research interests are primarily aimed at identifying underlying mechanisms of phenotypic evolution in reptiles, with a particular emphasis on color polymorphism.
Currently, my research is focused on the evolution of repeated phenotypes in color polymorphic island lizards. My fieldwork and study system focus on the herpetofauna of the Cycladic islands in the central Aegean Sea. Much of my work lies at the interface of ecology, evolution, phylogenetic, biogeography, and art!
