Emily received her Ph.D. in Biology from the University of Vermont where her research focused on the physiological consequences of winter warming in an overwintering butterfly species and the genetic basis of disparate heat tolerance patterns in populations of fruit flies. After finishing her graduate studies, she remained in the UVM Biology Department as a postdoctoral associate, co-teaching the Physiology of Global Change course and continuing research on heat tolerance in flies. She is excited to stay on as a Lecturer in Biology where her areas of teaching expertise include Ecological and Evolutionary Physiology, Climate Change and Seasonal Biology, and Professional Development
