Daniel Wuitchik of the Davies Lab is the 2022 recipient of the Dana Wright Fellowship.

Daniel’s research explores the effects of temperature on stress, symbiosis, and patterns of diversity in marine invertebrates. He leverages modern genomic tools, coupled with phenotypic assays of thermal performance to better understand how these invertebrates respond to increasing temperatures. His focus is on species that are local to New England, and attempts to contextualize how they may be impacted under anthropogenic climate change.

This fellowship was established in memory of Dana Wright (CAS ’00), an alum of the BU Marine Program. After completing her studies, Wright went on to work in research in right whale acoustics at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution on Cape Cod.

Congratulations, Daniel!
