I have a bachelor’s degree in veterinary medicine as well as PhD and master’s degree in animal Behavior and Management. In addition to, two postdoctoral scholar training in the area of Animal Behavior and Welfare at UC Davis. I am currently pursuing board certification from the American College of Animal Welfare (ACAW). I completed my PhD in USDA-ARS Livestock Behavior Research Unit at Purdue University in 2014, where I conducted experimental research to investigate the effect of group housing on the behavior, health, and welfare of dairy and veal calves. My research specialty focus on applied animal behavior, welfare, and stress physiology. My research utilized behavioral and physiological measures to investigate the effects of management practices and housing design, environmental conditions, and nutrition on the health, production, and welfare of animals. To master additional knowledge in epidemiology and biostatistics and advance animal welfare through sound study design and statistical analyses, I completed my second postdoctoral position at the Dairy Epidemiology Laboratory at VMTRC in Tulare, CA.
As a veterinary epidemiologist I specialize in dairy cattle infectious diseases and welfare. I received my veterinary medicine degree from Cairo University (1998), practiced for two years before completing the Food Animal Production Medicine Internship at the Caine Veterinary Teaching Center at the U of Idaho, followed by the Food Animal Reproduction and Herd Health Residency at U of California, Davis. I completed my masters and doctoral degrees at UC Davis in Preventive Veterinary Medicine and Epidemiology, respectively.
My current research interests focus on the impacts of a rapidly changing climate and environment on insect behaviour, ecology and physiology; insect community structure along environmental gradients; and insect-plant interactions.
I am currently Editor-in-Chief of Austral Ecology. a Fulbright Senior Scholar (2020) and an Australian Research Council College of Experts panel member.
Associate Professor of Biology at the University of Notre Dame. Associate Director of the Amboseli Baboon Research Project in Kenya. Elizabeth Archie received her PhD from Duke University. She was an undergraduate at Bowdoin College.
The goal of our research is to understand the evolutionary costs and benefits of social relationships, especially how these evolutionary consequences pertain to individual health, disease risk, and survival.
Our research follows two main strands:
* How do social organization and behavior influence the spread of infectious organisms, including bacteria and parasites?
* How does an individual’s social context influence their physiology, immune responses, and life span?
I am a zooarchaeologist at the Evolutionary Studies Institute of the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. I analyse animal remains (bones and teeth) from archaeological and fossil sites. I have studied animal remains from South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, Canada (British Columbia) and the USA (Southwest). My focus of my research is on the origins of hunting, the spread of livestock, and taphonomy.

I am a Lecturer at Mount Allison University in Sackville, NB, Canada, where I teach a variety of biology and science communication courses. The central core of my research examines how anthropogenic landscapes and actions impact wildlife. Commonly my research examines how phenotypic change, triggered by urbanisation or biological invasion, may allow reptiles and amphibians the ability to meet the challenges of a human-dominated world.
I completed my BSc (Biology), GDip (Science Communication), and MSc (Biology) at Laurentian University. My MSc research examined: (1) the effectiveness of mitigation structures at reducing reptile road mortality while maintaining population connectivity and (2) developing techniques for evaluating chronic stress in reptiles relating to roads and traffic. I completed my PhD at Macquarie University, which examined how Australian Water Dragons were responding to anthropogenic habitats through urban-derived divergent phenotypes; testing behavioural, morphological, and physiology traits between urbanise and natural-living populations. I then when on to conduct postdoctoral research at Stellenbosch University in the Centre for Invasion Biology examining how biological invasion were impacting the behavioural, morphological, and physiology traits of Guttural Toads as they transition from native to invasive, and urban to natural habitats.

Patrick Bergeron is an associate professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Bishop's University
His research centers around questions about the ecology, physiology and evolution of vertebrates. Under this large umbrella, work is separated into three main projects, on
Chipmunks, Humans and Wood frogs.
Anindita is a behavioural biologist, working on free-ranging dogs in India. She founded The Dog Lab at the Department of Biological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Kolkata in June 2009. The research group focuses on questions pertaining to the ecology, behaviour and cognition of FRDs, and they are interested in understanding the evolution of the dog-human relationship. Anindita is interested in science education, outreach and policy and engages through multiple platforms with the scientific community at large and the public.
