Dr. Ellen Ketterson will be visiting campus next week to deliver the departmental seminar on 01 March (12:30PM). Dr. Ketterson is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Biology at Indiana University, and a founding member of the Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior. She is also a member of the Cognitive Science Program, an Affiliated Faculty in the Department of Gender Studies and a Senior Research Fellow at the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.
Her research focuses on free-living populations of Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis) to addresses questions in physiological and behavioral ecology, phenotypic integration (e.g., across organ systems), hormonal regulation of behavior, and adaptation and constraint over ecological and evolutionary time. Her research also addresses basic questions about avian biology, animal migrations, animal behavior, sex and gender.
