Grace Jeschke (she/her) got her BA from Yale University, focusing on molecular and cellular biology, and a Master of Environmental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania with a resource management concentration. These cross-scale perspectives, combined with her lifelong interest in butterflies, inspired her work examining how thermal stress mediates immune responses during larval development. Grace is also interested in how species traits mediate response to anthropogenic disturbance. Her research has broad implications for insect population trajectories in the context of climate change. She enjoys taking long walks and knitting, but rarely at the same time.
