Drexel BEES Graduate Research Seminar: Floria Uy, PhD

Thursday, April 29, 2021

3:30 PM-5:00 PM

Floria Uy, PhD, University of Rochester


Biotic and abiotic adaptions in a social wasp

From Dr. Uy’s web site: “I was born in San José, Costa Rica where I obtained a B.S. and M.Sc. in Biology, focusing on host choice and handling behavior in parasitoid wasps. I then relocated to the US to complete my doctoral studies on the evolution of animal societies and social behavior at the University of Miami. For my doctoral research, I explored grouping behavior and reproduction, social interactions, and brain plasticity in primitively eusocial wasps native to South Florida. After completing my PhD, I took a position as a Lecturer in the Department of Biology at UM, then a Research Associate position at the Sheehan Lab at Cornell University. Most recently, I started a position at the University of Rochester as a Research Assistant Professor and Assistant Professor of Instruction. My team of students continue to work on local and international projects exploring social evolution in insects.”
