Speaker: Prof David Buchwalter, Department of Biological Sciences and Graduate Toxicology Program, North Carolina State University.
My seminar will summarize collaborative work with the Stroud Water Research Center to better understand how temperature affects physiology, development and fitness in an aquatic insect model. The research merges full life cycle rearing experiments under static and fluctuating temperatures with metabolomics, RNA-seq and respirometry.
The Buchwalter lab uses aquatic insects to explore how abiotic stressors (temperature, salinity and hypoxia) and contaminants (metals, metalloids, pesticides, PFAS) affect aquatic life. David received his PhD from Oregon State University in 2002 and spent 3 years as an NRC Postdoc at the USGS research laboratory in Menlo Park, CA with Dr. Sam Luoma. He began his academic career in 2005 at NCSU and is the Coordinator of the Environmental Toxicology Concentration. He serves as Associate Editor for the journals Freshwater Science and Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology Part C; Toxicology and Pharmacology.
