IS Senior Academic Advisor

Anne Innis Dagg



Anne Innis Dagg graduated from the University of Toronto, earned an MA in genetics from this same university, and earned a PhD from the University of Waterloo in animal behaviour. Her academic interests over the years have included Ontario mammals; giraffes in Africa; gaits of mammals; sexual bias in behavioural biology; feminism especially in academics; a historical study on Canadian women non-fiction authors and their books; sociobiology; animal rights.

Anne worked with students on any of these topics and others as well. She provided a course on introductory research, Independent Studies (IS) 100, and was useful in helping students with their writing.
