Cheryl A. Zimmer is a North American evolutionary biologist whose research interests are focused marine population ecology, specifically the role of hydrodynamics as a driving force in the evolution of marine life. She is a professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Los Angeles.[1] There she runs the Zimmer Lab, in collaboration with her husband and colleague Richard Zimmer.
