Renee Duckworth

Renee Duckworth is Associate Professor in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona. Her research integrates ecological and evolutionary concepts, focusing on understanding the evolution of complex traits, with particular emphasis on behaviour and its impact on population dynamics.

Kristin Aleklett Kadish

Kristin Aleklett Kadish, a microbial ecologist based at Lund University, has a diverse background in researching microbial interactions and behaviours. Her work focuses on understanding community formation and persistence in plant microbiomes using sequencing methods, alongside studying fungal foraging behaviour utilizing microfluidic model systems.

Lewis Halsey

Lewis Halsey is a professor at the University of Roehampton, London, and focuses his research on the energetic costs of movement across species. His Behaviour and Energetics Lab advances the science of behavioural physiology and energy expenditure through field and laboratory studies.

Luc De Meester

The Belgian aquatic ecologist and evolutionary biologist Luc De Meester is the director of the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), and also holds a Professorship at the Freie University Berlin, Germany and KU Leuven, Belgium. His research focuses on analysing the structure and functioning of lakes and pond ecosystems, as well as aquatic metacommunities and eco-evolutionary dynamics.

Orr Spiegel

Orr Spiegel, PI of the School of Zoology at Tel Aviv University, specializes in movement ecology and animal behaviour. He is interested in how individual variation in space use patterns affect social network dynamics, as well as other ecological and evolutionary processes.
