Event description: 

Join fSTS@Yale for a conversation with Yale E&EB Professor Jenn Coughlan on Wednesday, April 12 at 6 p.m. in WLH 117! Snacks will be provided. Dr. Jenn Coughlan is an assistant professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB). Their research program integrates genetic, genomic, and evolutionary approaches to understand how new species form and how these species adapt to their environments. Jenn is also an active member of the evolution and speciation communities and has organized several events for LGBTQIA+ individuals in STEM, including an evening of talks and discussions on the complex biological nature of sex and sexuality (“Evolution’s Rainbow”). As a part of their fSTS talk, Jenn will discuss how it is that biologists “find the genes” underlying complex traits, and recent progress and concerns in the application of these methods in understanding human diversity.
