Former lab member Dr. Jessica Yorzinski will be joining the faculty in the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences at Texas A&M University as an assistant professor in fall 2016! Jessica completed her PhD in the Patricelli Lab in 2012 studying visual attention in during mate choice and predator-prey interactions. Jessica’s innovative and ground-breaking research involved developing an eye-tracker to use on peahens as they assess peacocks during mate choice — you can read more about it in National Geographic, and Slate, and Scientific American, and Live Science, and Futurity and more. Jessica was a postdoc at Duke University and Purdue University after leaving UC Davis. Congrats, Jessica!
The Patricelli Lab is Professor Gail Patricelli’s lab in the Department of Evolution and Ecology at the University of California, Davis.
Members of the lab study a variety of topics related to behavioral ecology, bioacoustics and conservation in birds.
