Julie holding frog friend

Julie Jung is a Biology Ph.D. Candidate at Boston University studying the vibration-cued early hatching behavior of Agalychnis callidryas (red-eyed treefrogs). Her field work is conducted at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Gamboa, Panama. Working outdoors in sweaty, soggy, buggy, humid, normally deplorable conditions makes her really happy.

Julie got her B.A. from Williams College in 2015 and her M.A. from Boston University in 2018. She is basically in the 22nd grade. See her CV for more academic information. Julie is a 1st generation college graduate and a 1st generation US citizen. She credits everything good in her life to her loving parents, who rededicated and rearranged their entire lives to facilitate the success of their children.

Julie spends almost all her free time doodling or suffering on mountain tops. If you’re in need of a graphic designer or a climbing partner, here’s how to contact her:
