Dr. Matthew Denman Smith Death Dead – Dr. Matthew Denman Smith Obituary, Cause of Death
Dr. Matthew Denman Smith has sadly passed away, this was confirmed through what we saw on social media today.
A scholarship was created in honor of Rev. Dr. Matthew Denman Smith who received his PhD from the Department of Biology at the University of Florida in 2012. For those who walked the halls with him at Earlham College, the University of Arizona, and the University of Florida, Matt was known for his infectious enthusiasm, creativity, rigor of critical thought, and commitment to teaching and research as a unified enterprise. His research focused on the ecology and evolution of animal behavior in a diversity of organisms, including burrowing owls, horseshoe crabs, and crickets. Among Matt’s most important final wishes was to establish a fund that provides summer support for UF graduate students pursuing research in animal behavior. This scholarship celebrates his deep dedication to the study of behavior and his profound impact on students and colleagues.
