MATTHEW LEFAUVE, PhD
I am a behavioral neuroscientist and ecotoxicologist focused on zebrafish and Asian carp. I am interested in how interdisciplinary work can better help us understand how an organism functions in a changing environment. Most of my work focuses on behavioral flexibility and developmental neuroscience after exposure to an altered ecosystem.
I received my BS in Animal Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation and Psychology from Canisius College, working with Sue Margulis, and my MS in Biology from American University, working with Victoria Connaughton. I just completed my PhD in Biological Sciences at the George Washington University, working with Patricia Hernandez. I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow with Christopher Kassotis in the Institute of Environmental Health Sciences at Wayne State University.
