Sandra Rehan

Dr. Sandra Rehan is an assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of New Hampshire. She specializes in animal behavior, comparative genomics, and social evolution. She is a seasoned field biologist, having studied native bees and their social behavior for over ten years in North and Central America, Africa, Asia, Australia, and across the South Pacific. As a result, she is keenly interested in the environmental factors selecting for social behavior and considers Sean’s research an important contribution to our understanding of chemical communication and ecology. In her two years of teaching at the University of New Hampshire, Dr. Rehan has mentored twenty undergraduates on a variety of topics, and Sean is her first Inquiry author. “Learning to write for Inquiry is a great opportunity for undergrads of all disciplines,” she said. “It is particularly valuable for biologists to learn how to communicate their research to a broader audience.”
