Have you ever wondered what your pet cat or dog thinks about or wondered how an ant finds its way back to its nest? As a college student, I certainly did. As a member of Hood’s psychology and counseling department, I explore similarities and differences in how human and nonhuman animals think and interact with the world around them. Currently, my lab explores cognition in humans, dogs and salamanders. Students in my lab have opportunities to help us find new information about how humans are similar to and different from other animals.
