Congratulations to Dorothy Cheney

March 12, 2014

Professor Dorothy Cheney has been awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Neuch√Ętel in Switzerland. Dorothy and her husband Professor Robert Seyfarth, Department of Psychology, have contributed importantly to our understanding of communication and social behavior in non-human primates.  To do so, they have employed especially careful long-term observational field studies, most recently with free ranging baboons in the Okavango Delta, Botswana.  Professor Seyfarth received the same honorary degree.
