Colin J. Carlson

Colin is a second-semester Master's student. After completing his undergraduate work with a B.S. in EEB and a B.A. in Environmental Studies from UConn in 2012, Colin returned to the lab to work on a number of different projects pertaining to adaptation of ecosystems and societies to climate change. His previous work has focused on understanding the ecological implications of phenotypic plasticity for adaptation to climate change in the South African genus Pelargonium. His research has also focused on a number of broader social issues, including the relationship between religion and conservation (in the intersection formed by sacred forests); the protection and legal ownership of traditional ecological knowledge; and resilience of social and ecological systems to climate change as a function of cultural stability. His current work focuses on identifying the factors that drive species to extinction, using historical data to reconstruct actual extinction events, and thereby identify the factors that caused them.

Eldar is an undergraduate senior at the Storrs campus. In my past, he has worked as a lab assistant at Eastern Connecticut State University on DNA fragments of local and hybrid Phragmites. In Spring 2013, Eldar will work with Colin Carlson and James Mickley on a research project still in development. His research interests are predominantly based on neurobiology and the functions of the cerebrum and diseases associated within it. During the summer, he spends most of his time volunteering in Hartford Hospital and Hospital for Special Care working with patients mobility exercises and showing them new equipments and replacing malfunctioning items.
