Biography
Joseph Sisneros is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology and an adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington. He is also an affiliate faculty of the UW Virginia Merrill Bloedel Hearing Research Center and the UW Graduate program in Neurobiology and Behavior. He received his BS in Marine Biology (1988) and MS in Biology (1993) from California State University Long Beach where he was advised by Dr. Donald Nelson (shark behaviorist, 1937-1997). Joe received a PhD (1999) in Biology from the Florida Institute of Technology where he was mentored by Dr. Timothy Tricas (animal behaviorist and neuroethologist, now at the University of Hawaii at Manoa). Following his PhD, Joe received post-doctoral training in the lab of Dr. Andrew Bass (neuroanatomist and neuroethologist) at Cornell University in the Dept of Neurobiology and Behavior from 1999-2004 and then joined the faculty at the University of Washington in 2004 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology. In 2010, he was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure.
