A team led by Pacific University alumna Ali Osbrink ’19 and including Pacific Biology Associate Professor Christopher Templeton is having a paper on songbird cognition published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, a prestigious UK-based scientific journal.
Christopher Templeton, PhD
I am interested in the evolution and ecological implications of animal behavior. Research projects are diverse, but tend to focus on avian communication and learning. How do animals obtain, communicate, and use information in their environments to make behavioral decisions? See our lab website for more detailed information, publications, and opportunities for students.

At Pacific University, all faculty teach a variety of different courses. Typically, we do not use graduate teaching assistants, which means that your classes will be taught by professors and that you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know the faculty in your discipline.
Below I have listed some of the courses that I teach. We are always developing and trying out new classes, so the list may change now and then. See my lab website for an up-to-date list of upcoming courses.
