Tune in for another episode of The Graduates as we speak with Lisa Treidel about her work studying the energetics of wing polymorphic crickets. Lisa is a PhD candidate in the Department of Integrative Biology studying life-history strategies, nutrient acquisition, and metabolism. In the interview, Lisa talks about her love for mitochondria, her interest in studying individual variation, and how variation in energy production arises. Lisa also discusses which of her study organisms she would eat if she were given the choice.

The Graduates, featuring graduate student research at Cal, is broadcast every other Tuesday on KALX 90.7 FM. Past episodes are available to listen and download free on iTunes or online.
