Mistaken Identity Results in Research Opportunity

When Gareth Voss, pictured with his father, political science Professor Steve Voss (right), and biology Professor Randall Voss (left), was tasked with finding a UK professor to work with on a project at Dunbar High School, he never thought that a common email mix-up would have such a lasting effect on his scholarly trajectory.

Meet Catherine Linnen: New Faculty 2011

At the beginning of the Fall 2011 semester, we met with all of the new faculty hires in the College of Arts and Sciences. This series of podcasts introduces them and their research interests. Catherine Linnen is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology and researches how biodiversity arises. She is particularly interested in how organisms adapt to changing conditions and how that adaptation can lead to the formation of entirely new species. Currently she is working on two projects addressing this interest: one looking at changes in coat color among deer mice in Nebraska and the other looking at the relationship of host shifts to the formation of new species among pestilent insects to various pine tree species.
