Hi – welcome to my website in construction. I am currently a PhD student working with the Hofmann Lab in the department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My current research interests involve the local adaptation of marine organisms along the California Current System and Antarctica. I did my undergraduate work at UC Santa Cruz, where I studied biology, chemistry, and electronic music.

The purpose of this blog is to serve as a supplement to my official profile on my lab page, and will hopefully give you a better idea of who I am as an academic and a human being. You can learn more about me through my CV or by contacting me directly at <umihiko.hoshijima@lifesci.ucsb.edu>.
