Jelard Aquino

University of Wyoming senior physiology major and Cheyenne, WY native Jelard Aquino was recently awarded a three-month internship with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama.

In February, Aquino will conduct research with Owen McMillan and Krzysztof Kozak on butterfly speciation genomics. Aquino hopes that his research at STRI “will help contribute to the Smithsonian’s goal of understanding the Earth’s biodiversity by explaining the richness of insect life in the largest biodiversity hotspot.”
