Biographical Info

Rebecca Bruders





Rebecca works with Dr Michael Shapiro at the University of Utah where she uses the domestic rock pigeon as a model to study the evolutionary developmental basis of phenotypic diversity in animals. With over 300 different breeds of domestic pigeon created from centuries of selective breeding for traits such as colour, feather ornamentation, and behaviour, the domestic pigeon is an ideal model for understanding the genetic and developmental basis of unique traits.

Rebecca enjoys reading, running, walking, and playing games.
