Biographical Information

Stephen Harris is a Biology PhD student at the CUNY Graduate Center specializing in Ecology, Evolutionary Biology and Behavior. After receiving a B.S. from The Ohio State University in 2006 in molecular genetics, he came to New York City as part of the New York City Teaching Fellows Program. From 2007 to 2009 he obtained a M.A. in Secondary Science Education from the City University of New York while teaching science in public schools around NYC. After graduating he joined the lab of Dr. Jason Munshi-South at Baruch College. He is interested in using genomic data to answer evolutionary questions and is currently studying the population genomics of the white-footed deer mouse. Specifically, he is interested in how urbanization in NYC may be leading to local adaptation in mice in city parks. Stephen is also a fellow with the NSF GK-12 program at CUNY and works at the High School for Environmental Studies setting up a sustainable research program where students use DNA barcoding to catalogue biodiversity in NYC. Stephen just received a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship (GRFP) award in 2011 and will use it to continue genomics research.
