Robert Arndt is a PhD student in the Biology Department under the advisement of Dr. Steven Lima. His current research involves investigation of anti-predator behaviors in bats using acoustic analysis, as well as measuring winter activity to investigate changing behavioral trends between pre and post White Nose Syndrome periods in Indiana. He has been interested in bat behavior and ecology since 2008. Robert finished his B.S. in Biology with a minor in Conservation and Resource Use at Eastern Michigan University in 2009, and has since worked on wetland/plant, bat, amphibian, invasive species, wildlife rescue, and conservation management projects with a variety of organizations including Universities, consulting firms and the United States Forest Service.
