Lindsey Perkin is a Research Molecular Biologist with the USDA-ARS at the Center for Grain and Animal Health Research in Manhattan, Kansas. She received her Ph.D. in biology from Kansas State University in 2012; was a postdoctoral researcher at Emory University from 2012 to 2013. Her research interests focus on understanding the underlying genetic and molecular architecture of insect adaptation to biotic and abiotic stressors.
