My name is Yara Alshwairikh, and i’m an evolutionary biologist working towards my PhD at the Skelly lab at Yale University. Broadly, I am interested in ecology and evolutionary biology, and I have a special interest in reptiles and amphibians. For my dissertation, I am exploring the phylogeography of wood frogs and their remarkable adaptation to extreme freeze tolerance.
