Sandra Rehan

Sandra Rehan is an assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of New Hampshire. Rehan specializes in animal behavior, comparative genomics, and evolution. In her first year of teaching at the University of New Hampshire, Rehan mentored twelve undergraduates on a variety of topics, and Sean is her first Inquiry author. Rehan is a seasoned field biologist, having studied native bees and their social behavior for over ten years. As a result, Rehan is very aware of the highs and lows of ecological research, but overall considers the research conducted by Sean during his first field season a remarkable success. “Learning to write for Inquiry is a great opportunity for undergrads of all disciplines,” says Rehan. “It is particularly valuable for biologists to learn how to communicate their research to a broader audience.”
