Erica M Goss

Assistant Professor in the Department of Plant Pathology and Emerging Pathogens Institute, University of Florida. Research focuses on the origins, evolution, population structure, and migration of plant pathogens. Recognized as by the American Phytopathological Society as one of the discipline’s "faces of the future" in 2013.

Patricia A. Gowaty

Distinguished Prof. of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Inst. of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLA; Research Assoc, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Fellow of the AAAS, the Animal Behavior Society, the American Ornithologists' Union, the Soc.of Biology. Previous President of the Animal Behavior Society & Vice-President of the American Ornithologists’ Union. Awards include 3 NIH career awards, the Quest Award from the Animal Behavior Society & the Lamar Dodd Award.

Ana Grande-Pérez

PhD in Biology (University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain) in 1998. Posdoctoral researcher (1999-2004) with Prof. Pedro R Lowenstein at the University of Manchester (UK) and Dr. Esteban Domingo at Centro de Biologia Molecular "Severo Ochoa" (Madrid, Spain). She is currently Associate Professor of Genetics and researcher of the IHSM-UMA-CSIC. Her research interests are the study of virus evolution and new antiviral strategies, and the genetic variability of RNA and DNA plant viruses.

Simon C Griffith

I work on a number of evolutionary and ecological questions with a number of species of birds in both the field and laboratory. Captive model systems such as the Gouldian finch and zebra finch provide excellent opportunities to understand diversity in questions relating to speciation, sociality, sexual selection, and signalling. We are also interested in how Australia's extreme and highly stochastic climate influences behaviour and life history evolution.

Ueli Grossniklaus

Professor of Plant Developmental Genetics and Assistant Director of the Institute of Plant Biology of the University of Zurich. Co-leader of the University Research Priority Program "Evolution in Action: from Genomes to Ecosystems". Past-President of the Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center. Recipient of the various fellowships, the Amerbach Award, a Searle Scholarship, and Awardee of an ERC Advanced Grant. Elected member of EMBO and the German Academy of Science Leopoldina.

Niklaus J Grünwald

Research Plant Pathologist at the Horticultural Crops Research Laboratory (USDA ARS). Interested in epidemiology, genetics and evolution of exotic and reemerging plant pathogens in the genus Phytophthora.

Marcin Maciej Grynberg

Assistant Professor in The Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland. Graduate from The University of Warsaw. Former post-doc at The Burnham Institute, La Jolla, CA. Co-founder of the social scientist movement Citizens of Academia.

Xavier A Harrison

Research Fellow, Institute of Zoology, ZSL. Co-Secretary, Microbial Ecology Special Interest Group, British Ecological Society.

My past work has focused largely on population genetics and breeding ecology/life history variation in birds, whereas the current focus of my work is on i) the application of statistical methods in ecology; ii) the ecology of amphibian disease and amphibian microbial communities/microbiomes (papers in prep) and iii) the role of toll-like receptor loci in determining host fitness in birds and amphibians.

Ryan Hernandez

Assistant Professor at the University of California San Francisco in the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, the Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3), and the Institute for Human Genetics.

Linda Z Holland

Researcher in evolution and development, pioneered amphioxus as a stand-in for the ancestral chordate, Past chair of the Evo-devo division of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Zoology.

Tomas Hrbek

I am currently employed as associate professor in the department of genetics at the Federal University of Amazonas, located in the Manaus, Amazonas State, Brazil. Previous to working in Manaus, I worked at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras. My main interests lie in patterns and processes that generate and maintain Neotropical biodiversity. I predominantly use molecular tools, and my interests go from conservation genetics to phylogenetics. My studies focus mainly on aquatic vertebrates, but are not restricted to them.
