HeadshotAlex Warneke currently resides as a graduate student in Dr. Jeremy Long’s lab at San Diego State University.

As a chemical ecologist, Alex’s research focuses on the effects of heavy metal pollutants on the chemical communication between organisms. More specifically looking at how such pollutants are absorbed into algal tissues and how this phenomenon may be altering community level interactions.

In her “free time,” Alex enjoys convincing the public that Ecology is indeed sexy. With that goal, she is a strong proponent of unconventional science communication and extending the broader impacts of her research to the general public using the outlets of film and social media. Some of her recent appearances include the Outreach and Education Coordinator for the SDSU Marine Ecology and Biology Student Association, the #SciFund Challenge Round 3, and the Student Committee for the Beneath the Waves Film Festival.

When she is not busy busting a move in the cold room or filming her next rap video, she can normally be found frolicking through the California kelp forest.
