Fay A. Guarraci – After earning a BA from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, I went on to earned my Ph.D. specializing in Behavioral Neuroscience at the University of Vermont in Burlington, VT. (1995-2000) I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire (2000-2003). I have been at Southwestern University since 2003, where I currently hold the rank of Professor of Psychology, John H. Duncan Chair endowed chair and chair the Psychology Department. Southwestern University is a small, selective, nationally ranked liberal arts and science institution. I teach two lecture-based classes each semester as well as supervise students who conduct research projects in my lab every semester. My research involves investigating the neurobiology of female sexual motivation in an animal model. I typically teach introductory courses (Psychology, Neuroscience), research methods to sophomores, and Behavioral Neuroscience to juniors and seniors.
