Graduate Assistant, A&S Biological Students

I am a second year master's student working in Dr. Noelia Lander's molecular parasitology lab. My research is aimed at better understanding the cAMP signaling pathway that the eukaryotic parasite Trypanosoma cruzi uses to sense its environment and trigger cellular responses necessary for the parasite's survival.

Chelsea Elizabeth Carminito

Graduate Assistant, A&S Biological Students

Chelsea is a new PhD student in the Hobson Lab who started in January 2021. She earned her undergraduate degree at Mills College in Oakland, CA, where she studied behavioral ecology of California ground squirrels in Dr. Jenn Smith’s lab. Chelsea studied for a M.Sc. In Applied Animal Behaviour and Animal Welfare from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, U.K. For her capstone project she joined the Auersperg Lab at the Messerli Research Institute of the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna to study social cognition in Goffin cockatoos.

Chelsea’s plan for research in the Hobson Lab is to study the relationship between sociality and stress in Monk parakeets. She is interested in using the study of animal behavior to assess and improve animal welfare in scientific and evidence-based ways.

Ruma Chatterji

PhD Candidate, A&S Biological Students

Ruma Chatterji is a doctoral candidate in the Layne Lab-Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Cincinnati. Upon graduating with her master’s in biology from Texas A&M University- Corpus Christi, where she investigated memory mechanisms in Aplysia, her fascination with examining the role of memory in animal behavior propelled her to pursuing related research for her PhD. She is currently studying navigation mechanisms in fiddler crabs (Uca pugilator) and is investigating aspects of home vector memory subserving path integration, such as how the memory is stored and its duration.
