Chase Nunez, a Duke UPE PhD candidate, has joined our lab! He will be studying the traits of successional tree species to predict the composition of tropical forest with climate change. Chase is a NSF Fellow, and has worked previously in Kenya among other places.
Amelia Meier will join the lab in Fall 2015! Amelia is currently working in northern Gabon on a project to integrate citizen scientists into conservation science as a potential solution for reducing commercial bushmeat hunting. Amelia graduated from UC Berkeley, and has been working in West and Central Africa conducting ecological and cultural research in the field.
