Welcome Lina Melo!

Lina Melo

Lina recently finished her bachelor’s degree at the University of Los Andes in Colombia. She is actually doing a three-month internship assisting Laura Hebberecht and Fletcher Young’s projects, and is collecting life history data to unravel the secrets of the expanded mushroom bodies of Heliconius butterflies. In addition to insects, Lina admires spiders a lot, and she is interested in pursuing a master’s program focused on sexual behavior. Lina has worked before in Gamboa attending Laura Southcott’s doctoral project and is happy to be back.
