Science research project will take junior to Israel in summer

on April 7, 2017

Portrait of Jacob GaydosJacob Gaydos, a junior in the science research program, has his summer all planned out. He’s going to bat for bats, halfway across the world.

As a student in the three-year science research program, Jacob is tasked with researching, planning and implementing his own original experiment. One of the course requirements is to find a research advisor or a professional in their field.

While researching the echolocation of bats, Jacob began speaking with, and developing an experiment with, Dr. Yossi Yovel, a professor in the department of zoology at Tel Aviv University in Israel, and a member of The Bat Lab for Neuro-Ecology.

To complete his research on the echolocation habits of the bat Pipistrellus kuhlii, Jacob will be spending 10 days in Tel Aviv this summer, working with Dr. Yovel and studying the region’s bat population.

Congratulations, Jacob!
