Hello all! My name is Kaleigh and I am a part of the crew here on Compassion Crossing. I am interested in Antarctica, ecological and evolutionary transitions, and zoological collections preservation and research. In my free time I like to visit Museums in Chicago, paint, and take care of my various houseplants.
I am currently a graduate student researcher at DePaul University in the Aguirre lab. My current research is focusing on spinal anomalies that may arise in fish due to climate change. Along with this I am also a teaching assistant at DePaul, assisting in molecular laboratory set ups, as well as leading general biology labs.
I earned a Bachelors in Science degree at Loyola University Chicago, where I was a part of the Grande Lab which focuses on fish evolution. I have also been a volunteer at the Field Museum, where I was able to assist in wet bird collections preservation.
