Meetings take place from noon to 1 p.m. in the O’Shaughnessy (“leather”) Room, Room 108, O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library Center. Each week a professor from a different department will give a brief presentation on: (a) what his or her discipline is, (b) what attracts him or her to it, and (c) why the larger UST community should care.

The meetings will begin with an introduction to the professor’s discipline and area of expertise from noon to 1:15 p.m., followed by a discussion and conversation among students and faculty. All students are invited to participate in the dialogues at noon every Thursday. Cookies and juice will be provided.

Kay describes himself as “an evolutionary ecologist interested in linking trophic interactions, physiological mechanisms and behavioral strategies.” To learn more about Kay’s research, teaching, service and other interests, visit the Kay lab.
