J. Dylan Shropshire, PhD
I am a scientist and recent graduate from the Bordenstein lab at Vanderbilt University. My research broadly engages the intersections of symbiosis, evolution, genetics, and entomology. I am currently focused on studying the genetics of reproductive parasitism caused by a maternally inherited bacteria called Wolbachia, but I have also been involved in research regarding the microbiome and behavior.
I was recently awarded the NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biology and will be working in Brandon Cooper's lab at the University of Montana as a postdoctoral researcher.
