About Dr. Browning
Dr. Sheri Browning received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and Psychology from the University of Virginia in 2007, and earned her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from the University of Tennessee in 2015, where she studied songbird vocal communication. Because of Dr. Browning’s interest in both human and animal behavior, she is best described as a comparative psychologist. She also is a self-proclaimed “bird nerd,” whose passion has allowed her to conduct bird research on Lundy Island, in England’s Bristol Channel. After teaching psychology for four years in Tennessee, Dr. Browning became a faculty member at Barton College. Some of Dr. Browning’s favorite classes to teach include Animal Behavior, Evolutionary Psychology, and Cognitive Psychology. In her free time, Dr. Browning enjoys hiking, quilting, and participating in Barton Fit activities.
