Gregory K. Davis - Associate Professor
Bryn Mawr College
Gregory K. Davis (Developmental Biology, 2002) is an associate professor in the Department of Biology at Bryn Mawr College.
With his undergraduate students, he studies the environmentally cued, discrete, alternate phenotypes exhibited by the pea aphid, Acyrthosiphon pisum, focussing in particular on its reproductive polyphenism. His lab is also interested in the historical roles aphids have played in the development of genetics and embryology during the early 20th century.
