About Sam Borstein

I am a PhD candidate at University of Tennessee, Knoxville in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology where I am a member of Dr. Brian O’Meara’s lab. My dissertation research focuses on understanding the macroevolutionary consequences of diet specialization using fishes as a study system. However, I am broadly interested in the evolution and ecology of fishes and research and also research various aspects of fish biology, ranging from functional morphology to parental care.

To do this I employ a variety of approaches, including high-speed video to capture how individuals actually capture prey, morphometrics, phylogenetic comparative methods, and genomics.
