Biography

Mark Galatowitsch joined Centre’s faculty in 2015 as assistant professor of biology. In 2019, he was named a Centre Scholar.

His research focuses on the strategies aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates use to exploit dynamic environments. Galatowitsch uses a combination of extensive field surveys, field and laboratory experiments, and population genetics to test hypotheses in ecology and evolution. He has studied life-histories of generalist aquatic insects that exist across New Zealand permanent lakes and unpredictable temporary ponds, mass mayfly nymph migrations from Georgia river channels to seasonal floodplain wetlands, and leafhopper behavioral responses to predatory birds in Costa Rica. He enjoys mentoring research students keen to study entomology, freshwater ecology, and applied environmental science topics.

Galatowitsch received a B.S. in biology from Allegheny College, an M.S. in entomology from the University of Georgia, and a Ph.D. in ecology from the University of Canterbury.
