Spotlight:  Zach Hancock

Zachary Hancock is a first year PhD student who received his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University-Texarkana. There, his research focused on the ecology and distribution of littoral freshwater microcrustacea of the Suborder Cladocera.

He has a particular interest in the phenotypic response to environmental cues displayed by certain daphniids (cyclomorphosis). He is broadly interested in the evolution and phylogenetics of the branchiopods and malacostracans.
