Eran Levin, PhD
Head of the Nutritional Ecology Lab
School of Zoology
In his research, Dr. Eran Levin studies the links between proximate physiological mechanisms and ultimate life-history evolution through a lens of resource allocation and nutrition. He is focused on nutrition, as it impinges on virtually all aspects of an animal’s life and is central to many interactions between an organism, its form and function, its environment, or other organisms. As most metabolic pathways of macronutrients are conserved across all animals, it allows Dr. Levin to choose the appropriate model best suited to address specific questions of metabolic adaptation, integrating ecological, behavioral, physiological, biochemical, and endocrinal scales and levels of the organization.
