Deacon Profile: David Anderson

by on November 11, 2013

The Old Gold and Black recently ran a short piece on Professor David J. Anderson.  Dr. Anderson answers questions about why he is at Wake Forest, what he enjoys about teaching, and some interesting facts from his prolific research career.

Since 1982, I have been studying a population of seabirds called boobies in the Galapagos Islands.  I get a lot of mileage out of the name of the birds; I have tons of material about handling boobies, don’t get me started. Ok, if you insist: I’ve certainly handled more boobies than anyone else in the history of humankind, in the vicinity of 100,000.  That’s a lot of boobies.
