Prashant SharmaPost Doctoral Researcher
Current Position: Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin
Prashant has collaborated with our lab since the final years of his graduate studies with Gonzalo Giribet. By combining his expertise on the biology and phylogenetics of daddy longlegs with our experience in performing molecular studies of development on non-traditional model systems, we were able to establish Phalangium opilio as the first model laboratory harvestman species for functional genetic studies.
Prashant is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Wisconsin Madison.
