Dr. Claire Fuller

Dr. Fuller is a broadly trained ecologist with specializations in animal behavior, population ecology and parasitologists. Her MS thesis (Zoology) was on kin recognition in Townsend's Chipmunk (Neotamias townsendii), under the guidance of Dr. Andrew Blaustein at Oregon State University. She continued at Oregon State, completing a PhD under Dr. Blaustein on the influence of parasites on population ecology, behavior and ecological immunology of deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus).

After the PhD, she moved to the US Virgin Islands where she began examining similar questions in the tropical degrader, Nasutitermes acajutlae, a termite. She has been a faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences at Murray State since the fall of 1997.
