Marisa Hoeschele Austrian Academy of Sciences

Marisa received her PhD in 2013 from the Department of Psychology at the University of Alberta, where she studied pitch perception in vocal learning species with Dr. Chris Sturdy. She then moved on to a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Cognitive Biology at the University of Vienna where she built a budgerigar laboratory. Marisa’s primary area of research is the comparative cognition of musicality — the biological underpinnings of human music. In 2018, Marisa moved to the Acoustics Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences where she established and now leads the Musicality and Bioacoustics group.

W. David Stahlman University of Mary Washington

Dave is interested in the environmental contingencies that shape adaptive characteristics in organisms. Dave received his PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles, where he studied associative learning in nonhuman animals under Aaron Blaisdell. He then received a faculty appointment at the University of Mary Washington, where he currently is an Associate Professor of Psychological Science and the director of the department’s animal behavior laboratory. He has performed behavioral research with a variety of models, including rats, pigeons, pill bugs, and hermit crabs. Dave’s primary research efforts include the examination of the control of behavioral variability and the selection of behavior by its consequences.
