I'm always looking for motivated undergraduates to join my lab for work on the Vassar Farm, with my colony of D. ebraccatus at Vassar, and potentially in Panama during summer. Please see my lab website (pages.vassar.edu/jutouchon) for current information on ongoing student projects and potential research opportunities.
I teach BIOL 106 (Introduction to Biological Investigation), BIOL 226 (Animal Structure and Diversity) and BIOL 340 (Experimental Animal Behavior). I am on sabbatical during Fall 2016 but will be teaching BIOL 226 in Spring 2017. I have a longstanding interest in teaching statistics using the programming language R and I am happy to consult with students that are conducting research and looking for statistical advice. Please see my lab website for downloadable modules that you can use to teach yourself R (teaching materials developed in collaboration with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute).
