WELCOME TO THE KUPREWICZ LAB
A hub for investigating and teaching tropical biology
I am an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Connecticut. I am also a Research Associate in the Department of Botany at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. I study plant-animal interactions (primarily) in the tropics and how these interactions may be lost or altered in a changing world. I'm passionate about understanding ecological interactions and teaching the fascinating intricacies of these connections to students in the classroom and field. My fieldwork takes me to some of the most beautiful and biodiverse places on the planet: I have long-term projects in Costa Rica and Mexico and plans to expand my work to tropical mountains in Peru and Colombia.
