Lisa Limeri

University of Georgia
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Lisa Limeri is a Postdoctoral Research and Teaching Associate at the University of Georgia. She earned her Ph.D. in 2017 from the University of Pittsburgh studying evolutionary biology and behavioral ecology by investigating butterfly wing color patterns and mating preferences. After completing her Ph.D., she moved to UGA to work with Dr. Erin Dolan and transition to studying undergraduate education. With Dr. Dolan, she has investigated multiple aspects of the social and psychological development of undergraduate science students, including the experiences of graduate and postdoctoral mentors of undergraduate researchers and the negative experiences undergraduates have with their research mentors. In her own independent line of research, she is investigating mindset beliefs in undergraduate students. Her research has yielded insights into how students’ mindset beliefs change during college, the factors that influence changes in students’ mindsets, and problems with current measures for studying mindset in college students. She obtained funding from the National Science Foundation to develop a new survey to measure mindsets of undergraduate STEM students. Her research accomplishments have been recognized by the University of Georgia’s Postdoctoral Research Award. She also served as Chair of the inaugural Gordon Research Seminar on Undergraduate Biology Education Research, which is a 2-day conference for early career scholars which immediately precedes the associated, larger Gordon Research Conference.
