About Me

Hello! My name is Stepfanie Aguillon and I am an evolutionary biologist interested in understanding why organisms look and behave the way they do. For my research, I combine field approaches with genomic sequencing—primarily in naturally hybridizing systems.

I obtained a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree from the University of Arizona, and recently finished my PhD at Cornell University in the lab of Irby Lovette. I will be starting as a Stanford Science Fellow working with Molly Schumer in Fall 2021.

I grew up in southeastern Arizona, and am a proud Latinx, first-generation college student. I spend my free time reading/watching science fiction and fantasy stories, cross-stitching, and spending time outdoors. Follow me on Twitter @s_m_aguillon!
