Join us at the Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) program's STEM Bytes Seminar to hear research done at USC by current PhD students and postdocs.

Speakers:

3:00 pm PDT
Colette Fletcher-Hoppe, PhD Candidate in Marine Biology and Biological Oceanography

Talk: The aberrant nitrogen fixer UCYN-A associates with multiple hosts, predators, and coastal currents over 20 years in Southern California.

Colette Fletcher-Hoppe is a 5th year PhD candidate in Dr. Jed Fuhrman’s lab at USC. Her research combines ecology, genomics, and bioinformatics to investigate marine microorganisms and their spatial/ temporal diversity off the coast of Southern California. She is particularly interested in anthropogenic influences on nitrogen cycling organisms.

3:30 pm PDT
Maria Ruggeri, PhD Candidate in Marine and Environmental Biology

Talk: Transcriptomic response to heat stress differs based on life stage and reef origin in the coral Porites astreoides

Maria Ruggeri is a 5th year PhD candidate in Carly Kenkel’s lab. She is interested in cnidarian-algal symbiosis and particularly the genetic and environmental factors that lead to maintenance of these partnerships under stress.
