Dr. Katherine Mertes!

May 18, 2017

Jetz Lab PhD student Katherine (KT) Mertes defended her PhD on “Disentangling scale-dependence in ecological niches using observations and movement data” with flying colors.  Katherine used surveys and GPS tracking on hornbills and other birds in Kenya to assess how scale affects the niches and distributions. She is now a postdoc at the  Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute. Congratulations, Kartherine!
