The paper: 'Convergent evolution between insect and mammalian audition' by Fernando Montealegre-Z.1* Thorin Jonsson1, Kate A. Robson-Brown2, Matthew Postles1, Daniel Robert1.
Dr Montealegre-Z is one of the new academics joining the team at the University of Lincoln's School of Life Sciences. Having grown up in Colombia, he developed an interest in insects, especially katydids at an early age. Dr Montealegre-Z decided to study Entomology and did his honour thesis on katydids. During his Masters and PhD at the University of Toronto, Dr Montealegre-Z was trained in acoustics and biomechanics. He finished his PhD in 2005 and did a two-year post doctorate on sensory biology in Toronto before he moved to the University of Bristol in 2008 as a HFSP cross-disciplinary research fellow. He has come to Lincoln from the University of Bristol.
