Leah Lee

Data Science Fellow
Integrative Biology

I am a PhD candidate in the department of Integrative Biology. My research interest is at the intersection of biomechanics, entomology, and physiology. Currently I am studying how beetles use their shield-like forewings called elytra for flight, thermoregulation, and protection. Prior to UC Berkeley, I worked as a research assistant at Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST), studying algae phylogenetics. I received my B.A. in Biology and Mathematics from Swarthmore College.
