STRI Fellow Dr. Barrett Klein

We all know humans dream…well, so do bugs!

The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) is hosting a new researcher,  Dr. Barrett Klein.

Dr. Klein is an Assistant Professor at University of Wisconsin and has been studying the importance of sleep and dream patterns in various species such as bats, honeybees, and paper wasps.  Dr. Klein is hoping to have a breakthrough in his research by finding a connection between sleeping patterns and different species, while also studying how sleep loss impacts their ability to function in everyday life.
