Professor Armin Moczek's sabbatical work in Australia has been highlighted by the Australian American Fulbright Commission.
The commission published "Evolutionary Biology"—an article about Moczek's research while in Australia as a Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Science, Technology, and Innovation—in its August 2018 issue of Minds&Hearts.
Moczek traveled to Australia as co-leader of an effort to extend evolutionary theory to integrate knowledge from fields such as developmental biology and ecology. Host institutions were the Australian National University and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Canberra, Australia.
Moczek was one of twelve Indiana University faculty members from campuses across the state who were awarded fellowships in 2017 from the Fulbright Program, the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. The Fulbright Program, now in its 71st year, was created to build relations between the U.S. and other countries to find solutions to global challenges and shared international concerns. Over 160 countries participate in the program.
