At the start of August 2022, Art from the Philippines joined the MEcoH Lab as the newest PhD student. Emerging from a rigorous taxonomic training of Philippine macroinvertebrates during his Master’s in the Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU), Art will explore combined ecological and genomic approaches in studying the stream macroinvertebrates i.e. how the abiotic factors and genetic similarities and/or differences play into their roles in the river dynamics. With these in sight, he envisions to contribute into an interdisciplinary understanding of addressing the changes in current environmental patterns using macroinvertebrates as models.
