Welcome Wyatt Toure!
Wyatt is at STRI as a visiting researcher for three months investigating the behavioural consequences of evolved differences in the neuroanatomy of Heliconius and non-Heliconius butterflies as a result of being awarded funding through McGill’s NSERC-CREATE in Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Sustainability program. He is a graduate student at McGill University’s Department of Biology in Montreal, Canada working with Professor Simon Reader where he researches the factors that constrain behavioural plasticity in Trinidadian guppies. His research interests lie broadly within evolutionary biology, animal behaviour, neurobiology and genomics. In addition to research he is interested in the storytelling of science which he pursues by producing scientific videos.
