Catherine E. Newman, PhD

My research background is in phylogeography, population genetics, and ecology of salamanders in the US Gulf Coastal Plain. My current research in the Day Lab at UAB focuses on genetic and epigenetic responses to substance abuse in the brain using single-cell multiome analyses. I am also interested in how we can improve science education and science literacy.

I review manuscripts on phylogeography, biogeography, population genetics, phylogenetics/systematics, species delimitation, and some ecology – especially with amphibians. Please invite me! (In the near future, after more experience, I hope to start reviewing in single-cell genomics.)
