Biology professor Krista Ingram, featured this week on “Academic Minute”

Are you a night owl or a morning lark? The answer might help explain your crazy decisions in late afternoon. Associate professor of biology Krista Ingram recently appeared on “Academic Minute” to discuss her research on decision-making and its relation to time of day and genetic markers for when you prefer to go to sleep and get up. Ingram’s research program on this topic includes funding from the Picker Interdisciplinary Science Institute for joint work with Neil Albert, director of institutional planning and research and lecturer in psychology and neuroscience, and Jenn Lutman, director of the Writing and Speaking Center.

Colgate University’s Picker Interdisciplinary Science Institute funds research projects involving collaborations from disparate disciplines to make progress on emerging scientific problems that remain intractable to methods used within a single discipline. “Academic Minute” is a national radio program distributed by NorthEast Public Radio and WAMC. It is sponsored by Inside Higher Education.
