Tim Goldsmith, PhD

Timothy Goldsmith

Professor Emeritus at Yale University and Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Goldsmith is noted for his work on the vision of insects and crustaceans as well as the color vision of birds, particularly budgerigars. His work offers a virtual peek into the visual world of birds and bees.
Dr. Goldsmith has also authored two books on the evolution of human nature and a book for children that may have finally found a sympathetic publisher. In the past he has been actively invested in the reform of pre-college science education and has served on the advisory committees of the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences.

He is a former Chair of the Board of Directors of the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study, a non-profit organization dedicated to the development of curricular materials for school science classes and the assessment and improvement science teaching.
