Ari Winbush joined the Singh lab in July 2018 as a Research Associate. Ari received his Ph.D. previously from the University of Oregon where he studied neural plasticity during metamorphosis in Drosophila melanogaster. Since then, he has expanded his research to include Drosophila behavior, and more recently, circadian biology, behavior, and metabolism in C. elegans. Current interests include the genetic basis of behavior, metabolism, disease and other phenotypes. When not in the lab, Ari enjoys reading, exercise and the great outdoors.
