Kathleen Sagarin

Doctoral candidate, Biology, Wesleyan University

Kathleen (Katie) Sagarin's initial PhD work was on understanding the development of the little-studied posterior hypaxial muscle, whose mode of development appears to be intermediate between axial and appendicular. She is currently exploring the mechanisms of bacterial speciation in the Cohan lab.

As an undergraduate student, Katie assisted paleontological and developmental research in Dr. Larsson's lab at McGill University. Katie received her Master of Science degree from John Carroll University in 2016, where she studied cranial ossification heterochrony among amniotes with a focus on the phylogenetic placement of turtles.
