JULIE M. URBAN, Ph.D.

Laboratory for Conservation and Evolutionary Genetics

New York State Museum

jurban@mail.nysed.gov

EDUCATION:

Ph.D. (2008), Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior, University at Albany, Albany, NY.

Dissertation: A Phylogenetic Investigation of the Planthopper Superfamily Fulgoroidea

(Insecta: Hemiptera) with Emphasis on the Family Fulgoridae. Distinguished Dissertation

Award, College of Arts and Sciences, 2008.

Chair: Dr. Jason Cryan, New York State Museum M.S. (2005), Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior, University at Albany, Albany, NY.

Thesis: Reconstructing the phylogeny of the Superfamily Fulgoroidea (Insecta: Hemiptera) using multiple genetic markers.

Chair: Dr. Jason Cryan, New York State Museum Ph.D. (1995), Human Factors Psychology, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL.

Dissertation: Task differentiation and status differentiation: Effects on the performance, communication, and perceptions of teams.

Co-Chairs: Dr. Clint A. Bowers and Dr. Ben B. Morgan, Jr.

B.A. (1990), Psychology, University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio.

ADDITIONAL BIOLOGY TRAINING

Workshop on Molecular Evolution, Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratories, 2005.

International collecting experience in Belize, Costa Rica (3 expeditions), Peru, French Guiana, Ghana, India, Zambia, Malaysian Borneo (3 expeditions).

Domestic collecting experience in Arkansas, Arizona, California, Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, New Mexico, New York, South Carolina, and Vermont.

RESEARCH AREAS: My research interests focus on the evolution of planthoppers, a diverse and often morphologically bizarre group of phloem-feeding insects in the Hemiptera. By performing phylogenetic reconstructions of relationships among planthopper lineages using molecular and morphological data, my research tests hypotheses concerning classification, biogeography, morphological character evolution, and the co-evolution of planthoppers with their bacterial endosymbionts.
