Ben Vernasco, Ph.D.

I am an integrative organismal biologist fascinated by the proximate causes and consequences of variation in fitness-related traits and behaviors. My research addresses ecological and evolutionary questions by combining techniques from behavioral ecology, environmental endocrinology, and molecular biology to understand intraspecific and interspecific variation.

I am currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the lab of Dr. Heather Watts at Washington State University. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Applied Vertebrate Ecology from the Wildlife Department at Humboldt State University. I then conducted my doctoral research at Virginia Tech and was co-advised by Drs. Ignacio Moore and Brandt Ryder.
