  Fellowship dates Faculty sponsor & research focus Where are they now?
Sarah Friedman, Ph.D.  September 2020 - September 2021

Sponsor: Martha Muñoz, Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary BiologyDepartment of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology

Assistant Curator of Vertebrate Zoology, Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History

Research: High latitude marine environments are some of the most imperiled by warming temperatures. Sarah’s research at Yale will focus on uncovering the mechanisms driving rapid evolution and diversification in high latitude fishes, which play an essential role in these ecosystems. Determining these mechanisms is key to both understanding how species arise and how to maintain biodiversity in the face of a rapidly changing environment.
