PhD student (Co-Mentored w/ Melissa Pespeni)

GRFP Fellow

Andrew McCracken

B.Sc. Wesleyan University

Andrew's research focuses on the adaptive and evolutionary responses of marine organisms to multifactorial stress in the context of global climate change. He uses echinoderms (sea stars and sea urchins) to investigate selection responses to thermal and immune stressors. His work in the Nunez lab will explore modeling approaches to identify mechanisms underlying resistance, resilience, and vulnerability to wildlife diseases in fluctuating environments.
