Julie Hecht

Julie Hecht, MSc, wears a number of hats—although only metaphorical ones because real ones flatten her hair.

Julie has conducted research on dog behavior, cognition, and common anthropomorphisms with the Family Dog Project at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest and with Alexandra Horowitz at Barnard College in NYC. Julie is a PhD student in Animal Behavior and Comparative Psychology at the Graduate Center, CUNY. She lectures at Hunter College’s Animal Behavior and Conservation Masters Program and previously taught at the Anthrozoology Masters program at Canisius College.

Find her covering all things canine science at her blog “Dog Spies” on *Scientific American* and with Mia Cobb at “Do You Believe in Dog?”.

She would really like to meet your dog. Find her on Twitter at @DogSpies
