Are Bats Bad for You? Learning Fact from Fiction

March 7, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Anna Sjodin, Ph.D candidate at University of Connecticut will be here to discuss her research on bats and patterns of disease in bat populations, along with discussing their notoriety for hosting deadly human diseases.  By applying natural history and ecological theory to viruses, she works on understanding where and how these pathogens occur.

Anna’s passion for animals, conservation, and the outdoors (especially bats) came from her childhood and her love for Janell Cannon’s book Stellaluna. Learning more about bats during her undergraduate years inspired her to study the bat-human connection.
