Isabel Rojas-Ferrer
MSc, PhD

Animal Behaviorist and Science Communicator


I want to talk to animals! 

Since I have yet to find a magical shaman that allows me to communicate with every animal in the entire world (looking at you Eliza Thornberry), I have opted for the next best thing: I got a Ph.D. in Animal Behavior!

I'm what they call an Ethologist a.k.a someone who studies animal behavior. I have measured rhythm in bird songs, looked at fish sociality, mathematically modeled bee memory, and written a thesis on animal decision-making and personalities. I’ve done the research, now I want to tell you about everything I’ve learned. 

Did you know African wild dogs vote? Brainless amoebas are just about as rational as humans? That monkeys love to masturbate with weird objects? 

Well, I do, and I want to tell you all about it. 

Credentials: I have a B.Sc. in Industrial Microbiology from the University of Puerto Rico- Mayagüez, a M.Sc. in Ecology, Evolution, and Systematics from the University of Missouri- Saint Louis, and a Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Ottawa, Canada, specializing in Cognitive and Behavioral ecology.
