About the Presenter
Dr. Roberto Marquez Pizano received Bachelors and Masters Degrees from Universidad de los Andes, and Universidad de los Andes (Colombia). His Ph.D. is in Ecology and Evolution from the University of Chicago, and continued to postdoc at Uchicago and Stanford. He is a Michigan Fellow in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan. His research integrates systematics, population genetics, genome editing, and developmental biology, to understand the evolution of aposematic coloration, toxicity, and other associated traits in poison frogs of the family Dendrobatidae.
