Principal Investigator

Dr. Matt Fuxjager is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Brown University. He received an MS from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, studying magnetic orientation in hatchling sea turtles. From there, Matt received a PhD from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where he investigated the hormonal mechanisms of territoriality. Matt completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California, Los Angeles in the Department of Integrative Biology & Physiology and Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology, which is part of the UCLA Brain Research Institute. There, Matt studied how hormonal regulation of the motor systems evolves to support innovations in sexual behavior. See the Research page to find out more about his current interests.
