Welcome to the homepage of Umihiko Hoshijima! I’m currently a PhD student working with the Hofmann Lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My current research interests involve the local adaptation of marine benthic invertebrates along the California Current System. 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>.
