Marianne Shockley



Marianne Shockley received a B.A. in Biology from Georgia College and State University (1997), M.S. (2001) and Ph.D. (2009) degrees from the Department of Entomology at the University of Georgia. Her M.S. degree focused on investigating the effects of algae on the efficacy of Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis against larval black flies, a medically important vector of river blindness.  Her Ph.D. focused on researching and assessing science teaching and learning in higher education by introducing, integrating and evaluating service-learning courses in entomology through stand alone entomology service-learning courses and as a component of existing entomology courses by creating UGA Entomology's first and ongoing study abroad program.  She has traveled with students to Costa Rica and Ecuador and will take a group to the Galapagos Islands in 2016.
