Dr. Daniel Sasson joins Whitney Laboratory!
Daniel is a behavioral ecologist who is broadly interested in animal reproduction and sexual selection. He received a BA in Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill before moving to Jane Brockmann’s lab at the University of Florida. During his PhD, he used horseshoe crabs and a cactus bug to study the factors that lead to variation in sperm traits across individuals and populations.
Daniel now joins the Ryan Lab as a postdoctoral fellow, where he plans to investigate various aspects of ctenophore evolution, life history, and reproduction. He will conduct this research using a combination of behavioral, molecular, and computational approaches.
