Juliet M. Wong, Ph.D.

I am a College of Arts, Sciences and Education (CASE) Distinguished Postdoctoral Scholar in the EELab. Broadly speaking, I am interested in mechanisms of plasticity and how they relate to rapid acclimation or adaptation under a climate change context. I completed my Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) where I investigated the physiological and transcriptomic responses of marine invertebrates to ocean acidification and temperature stress during their early development. I am also passionate about inclusion and diversity in research and science education. I am very excited to be joining the EELab and to examine epigenetic modulation under changing environmental conditions in reef-building corals.
