Curriculum Vitae (updated October 2015)

Pablo Delclos

I received my B.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Rice University. As an undergraduate, I worked in Volker Rudolf's lab as a research assistant, which focused on community structure and dynamics in aquatic systems. I also worked on a project of my own that examined the effects of habitat and population size structure on predator-prey interactions in the damselfly larvae Ischnura posita.

I joined the Rosenthal lab in the fall of 2011, and am currently interested in environmental effects on female mate choice. I am currently working on a project to determine the effects of social environment and diet on female preference. By integrating behavioral assays, RNASeq and in situ hybridization, I hope to gain a better understanding of the neural framework involved in context-dependent mate choice.

Outside of the lab, I am an avid aficionado of European soccer, cooking and comics. I also spend much of my time travelling Texas with my canine sidekick, Jubilee.
