Lisa Emiljanowicz


Lisa Emiljanowicz is a PhD student in Integrative Biology. She completed her undergrad in Zoology at the University of Guelph in 2012 and her MSc in the Newman lab in 2014. For her undergrad research project, she studied whether differences in the genotype of aphids allow them to respond differently to elevated CO2, and whether these responses depend on the genotype of their host plant. She continued with her interest in the environmental sciences studying the life history and overwintering ability of spotted wing drosophila, an invasive pest species in Southern Ontario.  For her PhD she is working on developing a rapid risk assessment tool for insects in Ontario.
