Julia Hoeh is a Masters student in the Department of Biology under the advisement of Dr. Joy O’Keefe at Indiana State University. She is interested in Behavioral Ecology. Her current research is focused on the flight and acoustic behaviors of Indiana Bats (Myotis sodalis) at different artificial roost structures. Julia received her Bachelors of Science in Zoology and French from the University of Wisconsin, where she first gained an interest in bats studying Hylonycteris underwoodi in Costa Rica. After two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in The Gambia, West Africa and six months hiking the Appalachian Trail she’s excited to be working with bats again. She has been working as a field technician for ISU since 2013 and began her graduate work in January 2015.
