Gavin Martin

Extant Graduate Students Bybee Lab

PhD Candidate

Gavin is a 4th year PhD student working on firefly (Coleoptera: Lampyridae) phylogenetics and visual system evolution. He is using NGS technology to study the co-evolution of the opsin genes with the luciferase genes of both fireflies that use bioluminescence and those that do not. He is mostly interested in the phylogenetics and systematics of Coleoptera.
