Janan Evans-Wilent

Janan Evans-Wilent graduated from Ithaca High School in 2007 and will be a senior at Connecticut College this fall, 2010. Janan is an Environmental Studies major, but takes all the biology classes she can! Outside of the science world, she is on the varsity rowing team at Connecticut College. This summer (2010), Janan is interning with DCP, learning how to do video logs, photo identification, and data entry. This internship will prepare Janan for writing her senior thesis at Connecticut College; her focus will likely be on the relationship between behavioral interactions between individuals and acoustics. Janan spent the last few years interning at the Bioacoustics Research Program at Cornell University, focusing on whale acoustics. She is excited to be collaborating in the study of dolphins with DCP, and especially to get the chance to see and swim with dolphins in the wild!

Janan recently completed her Undergraduate senior thesis and graduates from Connecticut College this month. Congratulations to Janan!

Her thesis title is:

Vocalizations associated with pectoral fin contact in bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). Her thesis abstract is posted to the DCP Publications page.
