Research Inside the National Museum of Natural History

tags: , , , ,
This streaming video is part one of a four-part series by the Smithsonian Institute. It features some of the scientists who work behind the scenes at the National Museum of Natural History, aka, the Smithsonian. In this video, you’ll catch a glimpse of some of my colleagues from when I was a postdoc [2:32].


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    GrrlScientist, really, you should pay a bit more attention to detail. It is (and always has been) the Smithsonian Institution, not the Smithsonian Institute.
