Susan Riechert, Chancellor’s Professor in the UT Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, will present “Two Truths and a Lie: Pioneering Experiences of a Female Field Biologist” Friday, February 21.
During her presentation, Riechert will share her experiences during her 52 years as an in-the-field-oriented biologist. The span of her research interests is almost as broad as the timespan of her career. She started out working on the effects of prairie burns on spider communities, moved on to working on the annual migration of female Galapagos tortoises, then to developing heat-transfer physics models of where individual spiders can succeed in desert habitats, game theoretic analyses of spider contests, genetics, biological control, and more.
The UT Science Forum takes place Friday, Feb. 21 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Thompson-Boling Arena Cafe (located at 1600 Phillip Fulmer Way), Room A.
Guests are encouraged to bring their lunch or purchase it from the arena. Each presentation is followed by a Q&A. The event is free and open to the public.
We have temporary parking passes available for our guests who do not have UT parking passes. An RSVP is required for the pass. To request a pass, please email Amanda Womac.
