Julia York | Researcher Fellow
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign | Urbana, Illinois

Julia is a postdoctoral fellow studying the adaptation of polar organisms to climate change by investigating the mechanisms of temperature detection in polar fishes. Her work combines evolutionary analyses, experimental physiology, field collections, and functional characterization of candidate genes using electrophysiology to understand how both Antarctic and Arctic fishes sense temperature.
