About Catherine Scott

IMG_3155 copy

Hi, I’m Catherine. I’m a natural historian and behavioural ecologist and I am just starting a new research program focused on spider foraging ecology. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Lyman Lab at McGill University. Previously, I completed my PhD and a brief postdoc at the University of Toronto, where I studied sexual communication and behaviour in black widow spiders. You can find my publications here and I’m active on twitter as @Cataranea. I also sometimes blog about spiders and my research at SpiderBytes.
