Phoebe L. Reuben


PhD candidate in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

I am  a third year PhD candidate in the Frank lab at Tulane University and a NSF GRFP fellow. I am broadly interested in the impacts of landscape degradation on physiological stress, performance, and disease prevalence in bats. My research is conducted at the FCAT reserve in northwestern Ecuador.

I graduated with a BA in Biology and Psychology from Vassar College in 2017. There, I worked in the Touchon lab, studying behavioral ecology and phenotypic plasticity in the Neotropical hourglass tree frog. I wrote my senior thesis on phenotypic plasticity in response to predation risk in Dendropsophus ebraccatus tadpoles. 

In my spare time I enjoy running, indoor cycling, and teaching my cats how to give high fives!
