I am a Professor of Biology at Brock University, Ontario, Canada. My background is in Comparative and Evolutionary Physiology and I teach in the fields of behaviour, physiology, evolution, and neuroscience. My research lab involves a team of PhD, MSc and undergraduate students (TattersallLab.com) and collaborators from Brasil, Galapagos, Ecuador, Australia, Japan, and the US. We are actively involved in studying thermal aspects of animal biology, and rely on the use of infrared thermal imaging, as a non-invasive method of assessing body surface temperatures, as a means to infer changes in peripheral blood flow, or to estimate evaporative cooling, or to model heat exchange, to name a few. As an imaging technique, the value of modern infrared thermography is its ability to produce a digitized image or high speed video rendering a thermal map of the scene in pseudo-colour. I have developed open-source tools for analysing thermal images and will provide training in interpreting these images as well as help in designing the experiments and assisting with interpreting the thermal data.
