Environmental Psychology Innovation Center (EPIC) is in the department of biology at University of Miami (Go Canes!). The lab is supported National Institute for Environmental Health and Safety R00 grant. We study the environmental determinants of social behavior in wild and domesticated animals.
We use field and lab studies to understand the neural and genetic mechanisms that underlie environmentally-induced behavior.
The goals of EPIC are as follows:
• Excellence in Research: develop an extramurally-funded research
program in environmental psychology,
• Entrepreneurial Ventures: invent commercializable technologies,
• Broader Impacts: provide a scientific basis for human
health and conservation decisions, and
• Growing Talent: train diverse postdocs, graduates and
undergraduates in basic and applied
