Noah K. Whiteman is Associate Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley (UC-Berkeley). Professor Whiteman also holds appointments in Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (affiliated faculty) and University and Jepson Herbaria at UC-Berkeley (faculty curator of plant-animal coevolution). Professor Whiteman’s dissertation research on the evolution of species interactions took him to the Galápagos Islands where he studied nascent co-speciation between endemic birds and their parasites. He developed the plant-herbivore system he currently studies while on a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital. Professor Whiteman was previously Assistant and Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona. Research in his laboratory at UC-Berkeley focuses on coevolution between plants and herbivorous insects and cuts across several fields in biology, including behavior, biochemistry, experimental evolution, functional genetics, molecular evolution, neuroscience, and quantitative genetics.
