U of S graduate and specialist in predator-prey relationships wins NSERC Doctoral Prize

Maud Ferrari
December 22, 2010

University of Saskatchewan doctoral graduate Maud Ferrari has recently received the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Doctoral Prize for her research on predator recognition in prey animals, one of only four such prizes awarded nationally.

This is the final year of the $10,000 NSERC Doctoral prize. For nearly two decades, it has been awarded each year to four outstanding students who are completing their doctoral degrees at Canadian universities. Ferrari completed her PhD in 2009.

Ferrari specializes in understanding how fish and frogs learn to recognize and react to threats.

Her research career has so far taken her from Canada to Australia and to her current posting as an NSERC postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California at Davis.
