Biologists study all living organisms and their environments. Contrary to popular misconception, biologists don’t always work with a microscope in a lab. Sometimes, they also conduct research in natural ecosystems, collect specimens, and track animals. Their researches are also very helpful in examining the environmental effects of industrial pollution and global warming.
In this week’s edition of the Career 100 interview series, we will feature Tom Houslay, a biologist. Tom is an evolutionary biologist who’s interested in evolutionary genetics.
Tom is currently working on a research endeavor that focuses on the evolutionary genetics of the stress response in vertebrates. He holds a PhD in Biology from the University of Stirling where he’s currently working as an associate research fellow.
Let’s join Felicia Gopaul, founder and president of the College Funding Resource, as she interviews our guest for this week.
Some of the highlights of this week’s interview include:
- His story in becoming a biologist.
- What type of research problems biologists typically are dealing with.
- How and in what way biodiversity impacts the world.
- How having a background in computer science helps him become a better biologist.
