Research

In these courses, students earn credit for working with faculty on scholarly projects intended to make original contributions to respective disciplines. Students in my research lab receive academic and career mentoring and hands-on training in the scholarly methods of physiological ecology, animal behavior, biomechanics, myrmecology, and natural history. In addition to doing research with the faculty member and other members of our research team, students are also prepared to engage in professional activities relevant to success in our discipline including conducting fieldwork, statistical analysis, developing scientific communication skills, presentations at local and national meetings, training in both lab and field safety, and awareness of the relevant bioethical considerations of our research.
