The Thorne Lab warmly welcomes its newest student member, Tziporah Feldman! Tziporah is joining us from University of Cincinnati, where she earned a B.S. in Biology in addition to a certificate in GIS and a minor in Math. Her current research interests include landscape and foraging ecology, and she has previously published on invasive ecology of Callery pear trees as well as the experience of undergraduate women in STEM. With our group, she will be working on using modeling to answer questions about changes in albatross energetics and movement due to anthropogenic influences as part of her Ph.D. in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook. She hopes to produce actionable results for the benefit of albatross conservation.
Tziporah is joining us as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and a winner of the Stony Brook Graduate Council Fellowship. We are thrilled to have Tziporah with us and are looking forward to working with her!
