Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Patricia Louise Dudley was born in Denver, Colorado on May 22, 1929. She earned her B.A. at the University of Colorado in 1951 and her M.A. (1953) and Ph.D. (1957) degrees in Biology at the University of Washington, where she studied invertebrate zoology, marine biology, and copepoda under Professor Paul L. Illg. Dudley continued to work at the University of Washington, first as a research associate between 1957 and 1959 and later as an instructor in marine invertebrate zoology at the Friday Harbor Labs during the summers of 1960 and 1961. She first joined the faculty at Barnard College in 1959 and initially served as a instructor in biological science until 1962. She was later named Assistant Professor (1962-1967), Associate Professor (1967-1973), and Professor (1973-). In 1979, she was named as the Chair of the Biological Sciences department.

Professor Dudley has published a large number of articles and monographs on the subject of the biology of copepoda, many of which were researched and written together with Paul L. Illg, her former advisor at the University of Washington. She also spent two years (1969, 1971) working as an investigator in the Systematics Ecology Program at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute's Marine Biology Lab and served as a National Science Foundation faculty fellow between 1965 and 1966. Professor Dudley also has held professional memberships in the American Institute of Biological Science, American Society of Zoologists (Secretary of the Invertebrate Biology section 1973-1976), Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom, American Microscopical Society, and the Environmental Defense Fund.
