About Robin Hopkins
This author has yet to write their bio.
Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud Robin Hopkins contributed a whooping 58 entries.
Robin has received the Everett Mendelsohn Excellence in Graduate Mentoring Award! Recognizing only a small number of Harvard professors each year, the award honors faculty members who offer outstanding support and encouragement while promoting the career and personal development of their mentees. Awards are based solely upon the nominations of graduate students. Congrats, Robin!
Congrats to postdoc Samridhi Chaturvedi for her new publication in Nature Communications! The paper, “Recent hybrids recapitulate ancient hybrid outcomes” is based on work with Lycaeides butterflies that Samridhi completed as part of her PhD in Zachariah Gompert’s lab at Utah State University.

Congratulations to former post-doc Sevan Suni on her new paper, which looks at how water limitation affects plant-pollinator interactions. Read it here!
The lab keeps on expanding! Charlie, our newest member, joins as a research assistant.
We’re thrilled to welcome another new postdoc to the lab, Dr. Antonio Serrato-Capuchina. Antonio joins the Hopkins Lab after completing his PhD in Prof. Daniel Matute’s lab at UNC-Chapel Hill, where he studied the role of transposable elements in speciation.
Bridget Bickner joins the lab as an OEB graduate student. Bridget previously worked in the Hopkins Lab as a DaRin Butz Foundation research intern in the summer of 2018, and we’re very excited to have her back!
