For her Masters, Ingrid is studying phylogenetic community structuring in Amazonian lizards at different geographic scales, and the effects of rivers in structuring populations, species and communities of lizards. For an undergraduate thesis, Ingrid worked with the large-scaled jaraqui (Semaprochilodus insignis). Species of Semaprochilodus and Prochilodus are important ecosystem engineers and in nutrient recycling, as well as being large economical importance. She used microsats to test population structuring along the main channel of the Amazon River, as well as temporal differentiation between even and odd year cohorts. Her interests are in evolution in general, and for her Masters she plans to develop her dissertation with lizards.
