In the Media

One benefit to working in a lab whose focal animal is so charismatic is that we often end up in the news. Here are some links to media stories that feature me and my research.

I’m on Bill Nye!

I can’t provide a link here, but those of you with a Netflix subscription can watch S3E6 of Bill Nye Saves the World; my lab and I talk about our research on crows and what makes these birds so intelligent. We make an appearance around 7 minutes into the episode.

In 2017, people at the Cork Institute of Technology started getting attacked by crows. This attracted a lot of media attention, and Ethan Shaw, from Earth Touch, contacted me to get my professional opinion on what was going on. My advice (which is also featured in this website) ended up front and center to the article. You can read it by clicking this link.

The March/April 2016 issue of Audubon focused entirely on corvids, and my lab’s current work on crows was the main article! The author (Kat McGowan) gives a comprehensive overview on how we use PET imaging to study  the activity within a crow’s brain- a major component of my PhD research. In addition to my work, McGowan also covers my colleague Kaeli Swift’s examination of crow funerals, and my advisor’s early research on ravens. Read it here.
