Graduate Student Animal Behavior The College of Lib Arts & Sci
Amalie is an Animal Behavior PhD candidate studying the human-honeybee relationships made possible by digital environmental education. She completed two undergraduate degrees--Genetics BS and Spanish literature BA--at ASU in 2020. Amalie worked with Dr. Gro Amdam as an undergraduate researcher studying honeybee blood-brain barrier physiology.
For her doctoral research, Amalie has leveraged her background in honeybee biology and the humanities to investigate how children and honeybees interact in a shared educational space. She is co-advised by Dr. Gro Amdam and Dr. Mirka Koro. Guided by posthuman and new materialist philosophies, Amalie uses qualitative methodologies such as multispecies encounters, nature tour interviews, and mapping.
During her time at ASU, Amalie has been a teaching assistant for courses like BIO 100 The Living World, BIO 181 Biology Concepts Lab, BIO 340 Genetics, BIO 415/514 Statistical Concepts for Biology and BIO 360 Animal Physiology.
