Our keynote speaker, Dan Riskin, is host of Animal Planet's popular show about parasites Monster's Inside Me. Dan's research has focused on the biomechanics of bat locomotion, and he is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at the City University of New York. Dan's always been interested in bats, but his interest in parasites is a more recent development. His doctoral thesis was on Common Vampire Bats in Trinidad, which are parasites - they drink mammalian blood - however it wasn't until he started work on Monsters Inside Me that he started really paying attention to the wonders of parasitism. Since then, he's appeared on Jay Leno, Dr. Oz, and Craig Ferguson to talk about parasites, and he's always thrilled to be able to share a little bit about his experiences with parasites and bats. As a passionate educator, Dan looks forward to sharing his unique perspective on the role of teachers in an ever-changing world.
