Dr. Jennifer Kotler
I am interested in the evolutionary implications of parent-offspring conflict, with a focus on genomic imprinting and fetal/maternal microchimerism. I am currently working towards understanding these phenomena from a behavioural, psychological, and biological perspective. This includes interdisciplinary work on Prader-Willi Syndrome and Angelman Syndrome, as well as various molecular and behavioural projects with mice. I recieved my PhD in 2018 in Organismic Evolutionary Biology at Harvard advised by David Haig. As a graduate student, I also collaborated with Max Krasnow and the Evolutionary Psychology Lab.
