Claire Curry


Claire Curry joined University Libraries in July 2018. She provides subject expertise for the sciences and helps faculty and students with research consultations such as on statistical programming, literature searching, and experimental best practices. She received her B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of North Texas in 2007 with an honors thesis on dragonfly behavior. She completed her Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Oklahoma in 2014 studying a spatiotemporally complex avian hybrid zone. She conducted post-doctoral research at the University of Manitoba from 2014-2016 (focusing on anthropogenic noise affecting grassland bird behavior) and at the University of Oklahoma from 2016-2018 (focusing on species distribution models and landscape ecology). Her research interests include evolutionary and behavioral ecology, lichens, and adoption of the open science framework.
