Creating a Unified Framework for the Quantitative Study of Animal Aggregations
Dr. Steven Viscido funded by the National Science Foundation
The Faculty Early Career program (CAREER) grant is one of the most prestigious funding mechanisms of NSF. Designed to allow faculty to build a firm foundation of research for their lifetime, this award is granted to those with especially rigorous and beneficial scientific research contributions. Dr. Steven Viscido’s project examines animal group behavior that is significant to the field of behavioral ecology. It is developing and testing a new hypothesis of animal aggregation, while producing a new analytical tool that can be used with a graphical user interface by other researchers nation-wide.
