Tina a. Barbasch
I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. I was formerly an NSF postdoctoral research fellowship in the laboratories of Dr. Alison Bell and Dr. Eva Fischer in the Department of Evolution, Ecology and Behavior at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. I completed my PhD in 2020 in the laboratory of Dr. Peter Buston, after which I held a postdoctoral associate lecturer position in the Biology Department at Boston University. My research integrates experimental manipulations, field surveys, theoretical modeling, and molecular tools to investigate how patterns of behavior emerge through interactions between genes, neural circuits, environments, and phenotypes.
