BIO: Creagh Breuner is a Professor at University of Montana, USA. Creagh completed her PhD at the University of Washington with Professor John Wingfield (who is currently a visiting scholar at Deakin).

She pursued postdoctoral training at Arizona State University before beginning a lectureship at the University of Texas in 2001. She moved to the University of Montana in 2006 where she is now a tenured professor. She received a prestigious National Science Foundation Career Award to study the role of binding globulins in stress reactivity (the ‘free hormone’ hypothesis).

In general, her research seeks to evaluate the role of glucocorticoid stress hormones in modulating tradeoffs in reproduction and survival in free-living birds.

More information on her research is available on her website.
