The Avian Ecology and Undergraduate Biology Education Research Laboratory is managed by Melissa Haswell.

Her research interests in both ecology and science education.  Her background in ecological research involved the study of winter bird-feeder use of the White-breasted Nuthatch and dominance hierarchy in Black-capped Chickadees, as well as nesting and reproductive behavior of Eastern Bluebirds, House Wrens, and Tree Swallows.  

Her science education research focuses on social just aspects of STEM education including women and minorities in STEM; departmental culture; development of scholarly identity of faculty; and the implementation of various learning modalities such as case-based learning, problem-based learning, and dialogue education as applied to biology education.
