Lidia Molina Serpas

I am a senior environmental studies major and biology minor at Gettysburg College. I am currently studying the behavior of frog-eating bats and their selectivity of frog species in Panama. During the summer of 2019, I conducted research with Dr. Trillo at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama.

Oliver Pickering

Oliver is a sophomore at Gettysburg College and joined the Trillo Lab in fall 2018. In the summer of 2019, he studied collateral damage with Dr. Trillo at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama.

Brian Ruether

Brian (Gettysburg College '19) spent two summers with Dr. Trillo in Panama at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.  While there, he studied the anti-predator chemical defense of two species of tortoise beetles as well as how two species of tropical frogs deal with different levels of predation and parasitism risk. Currently, Brian is a microbiologist at the Delaware Public Health Lab in Smyrna, DE.  He will be starting a PhD program focusing on chemical ecology at Virginia Tech in fall 2020.

Tiffany Lam

Tiffany (Gettysburg College '19) spent the summer after her sophomore year with Dr. Trillo in Panama at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute studying anti-predatory chemical defenses in two species of neotropical tortoise beetles. She also designed and developed this website. She is currently employed as an associate scientist at Eurofins, USA.

Cartier Jankura

Cartier (Gettysburg College '19) investigated the behavior of frog-eating bats and their selectivity of frogs species in Panama. She has also worked as a research associate at Western EcoSystems Technology, Inc. studying the effect of wind turbines in bat and bird mortality. Currently, she is a staff scientist in the ecological services at Civil and Environmental Consultants, Inc.
