Fletcher Young

Fletcher Young will be joining the Gamboa Heliconius community in January as a short-term fellowship recipient. A Ph.D. student at Cambridge University, Fletcher is interested in comparing long-term memories between Heliconius butterflies and their sister species. Stephen Montgomery, whom Fletcher studies under, similarly visited STRI in 2012 as a short-term fellow where he characterized the striking difference in brain morphology between Heliconius and other closely related genera.
