Anoles: Meet the Scientist
Meet Rosario Castañeda, the scientist featured in our Anole podcast:
Where do you work?
I work at the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University, as a postdoctoral researcher. I am also an EOL Rubenstein Fellow.
What do you study?
Anolis lizards, commonly known as anoles. I study the evolution of morphology and ecology in mainland species.
What are three titles you would give yourself?
Evolutionary biologist, conservation enthusiast, traveler.
What do you like to do when you are not working?
When I'm not working I like to go to the movies, cook and when there is more time, travel (especially to places with a historical background or interesting animals, like lizards!).
What do you like most about science?
What I like about science in general and research in particular is that is a never ending process. You discover one thing and that leads to a million other interesting questions.
