Author Biography

Tyler Carrier, Department of Biological Sciences, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA,Adam Reitzel, Assistant Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA,Andreas Heyland, Associate Professor, Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph, Canada

Tyler Carrier is an NSF Gradate Research Fellow and Ph.D. student in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He received his B.S. from the University of Maine in 2015, was a visiting research scholar at Brown University that summer, and began his Ph.D. that fall. His research interests are in how oceanographic phenomena shape evolution in the sea with an emphasis on marine invertebrate larvae, as well as host-microbiota partnerships and how these relationships promote evolutionary innovation. He has been the recipient of a number of competitive nation grants, and has published four peer-reviewed papers in international journals.

Adam Reitzel is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Dr. Reitzel's research combines comparative development, physiology, and gene expression to determine mechanisms mediating organism-environment interactions. He obtained his M.Sc. degree from the University of Florida in 2002, a Ph.D. from Boston University in 2008, and was a postdoctoral scholar at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. Dr. Reitzel has published more than 60 peer-reviewed publications and organized various meetings and symposia. Dr. Reitzel has received funding from federal (NSF, NIH) and international (Human Frontiers) agencies in support of his research program.

Andreas Heyland is Associate Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Guelph. Dr. Heyland is interested in understanding the physiological and molecular mechanisms underlying marine invertebrate life histories. He obtained his M.Sc. degree in Zoology from the University of Zurich, a Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Florida in 2004, and between 2004 and 2007 trained as a postdoctoral fellow with Leonid Moroz at the Whitney Laboratory for Marine Biosciences. Dr. Heyland has published more than 44 peer reviewed scientific articles in international journals such as BioEssays, Evolution, Evolution & Development, Nature, and Cell. He co-edited the book: "Mechanisms of Life History Evolution" with Thomas Flatt. He is regularly invited to speak at Universities and conferences and to review journal articles and grant proposals.
