Molly Magid is interested how species respond to climate change and how genetic analysis can be used to inform conservation.  Molly also enjoys finding ways to communicate science to the public that is clear, novel, and engaging. Magid is working with Dr. Tyler Kartzinel to investigate how blowfly communities in Equatorial Guinea respond to habitat disturbance. Molly is also collaborating with the Biodiversity Initiative, a research group focusing on wildlife surveys, ecological studies, and conservation in Equatorial Guinea, and these results will provide crucial information to the Biodiversity Initiative about the native blowfly diversity in tropical forests.
