Meghan works with USI Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Alex Champagne to investigate the lipids found in the skin of bats. They are particularly interested in how the skin of bats is similar to that of birds. They are searching for evidence of convergent evolution among bats and birds. Meghan presented some of her work at The Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology 2019 Annual Meeting in Tampa, Florida earlier this year.
