Esteban Fernandez-Juricic Lab

at Purdue University





Welcome to the lab!


Esteban Fernandez-Juricic

I am interested in behavioral ecology, visual ecology, and conservation biology, as well as the interactions between these fields. 

My research is question-driven. I answer my questions in a comprehensive manner, using a combination of empirical, theoretical, and comparative approaches. My model species are usually birds, but I have also worked with mammals, amphibians, insects, and fish.

I was fortunate to enrich my education by attending Universities in different parts of the world. I did my undergraduate, specialized in ecology, at "Universidad de Cordoba", Argentina. My Ph.D. was in animal ecology and conservation biology, at "Universidad Complutense de Madrid", Spain. My two post-docs were focused on behavioral ecology; the first one at University of Oxford (United Kingdom), and the second one at University of Minnesota (USA). I was an Assistant Professor at California State University Long Beach for almost six years. I am now an Associate Professor at Purdue University.

I am currently interested in two main topics:

- The evolution of visual systems and scanning behavior in birds.

- Strategies to solve human-wildlife interactions in protected areas, airports, and urbanized landscapes.

I follow different methodological approaches to address these topics.
