Jose Gaytan

Education & Background:
Zoology and Conservation Biology
Expected graduation May 2027

Research Interests:
I have a strong interest for fieldwork regarding the conservation of species and the ecology of said species. I’m interested in developing techniques both outside and inside a lab environment to enhance my career experiences, and also to better be able to provide resources that promote the conservation of species around the planet.

Personal Interests:
I really enjoy rock climbing, whether that be indoor or outdoor, and also enjoy going to the gym to improve my strength and technique. Running outside, and frankly, any form of exercise outdoors I will enjoy doing. I have a particular interest in reptiles, amphibians and insects, some of which I had as pets in the past. I also love my House Fellow job as it allows me to connect to the peers on my floor of the residence hall. Other interests include chess, art, and recreation.
