Alexa Sadier


I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in Karen Sears lab at UCLA. My research is broadly related to mammalian evo-devo with a special focus on bats as a hyperdiverse model group. In particular, I am interested in how the inherent structure of developmental mechanisms facilitate or constrain organ and shape evolution, and as a result, species evolution in response to environmental pressures. In addition, I am involved in other collaborations such as bat sensory systems evolution, the loss of tusks in elephants or limb evolution.
