Profile picture of Katie Fiocca

I am a trained entomologist with a broad interest in understanding how nutritional and chemical ecology shape behavior in animal systems. In the O’Connell lab, I hope to better characterize prey specificity of poison frogs, and to understand whether toxicity of their ant prey influences prey selection, especially in the face of globally declining arthropod diversity and abundance.

Outside of the lab I enjoy cooking, traveling, and trying new things.
