Kevin came to us from Prescott College and worked/works with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission. His thesis was on the winter ecology of 4 bat species in North Carolina.
Brian did came to us from SUNY-Oswego. He is interested in the evolution of social behavior and communication and his MS work was on the in flight social calls of bats at the UNCG Wetlands. He is off to do a PhD at NDSU on bat communication and social behavior.
Angie Larsen was a PhD student in the lab. She began in summer of 2012 helping out Ashley and Kristy in E. Mississippi examining influences of switchgrass intercropping on small mammals. Angie completed her undergraduate degree at UW-Stevens Point and went on for her master's degree at GVSU in lower Michigan. Her PhD explored how biofuel feedstock production influenced the behaviors and higher ecological processes. She is a Post Doc in John Orrocks lab at UW Madison.
Sarah Schimpp worked on the NC NABat project. She examined urbanization effects on bat activity through the night and a modified NA Bat protocol for sampling urban areas. She is back in Arizona applying for PhD programs and working on bat projects.
Jack graduated with his MS degree in December 2014. Jack's work focused on year round activity of peripheral populations of White Nose Syndrome - impacted species along the North Carolina Coastal Plain. Jack is currently a PhD student at the University of Georgia.
Kristy King did her MS on the influence of intercropping switchgrass on rodent population dynamics and community structure. She worked in Mississippi. Kristy also was involved in understanding the effects of urbanization on bats in North Carolina. She has an undergraduate degree from Louisana State University and is from New Orleans.
Urubatan was a visiting MS student from Brazil. He was interested in the impact of urban noise on the echolocation call structure of bats.
Jessie was an MS student on the Peromyscus ultrasound project. She has worked as a technician with the NPS in the Natural Sounds and Night Skies Division
Ashley finished her MS degree in late 2013. She examined the effects of vegetation density in the understory on ultrasound propagation. She is currently a biologist with the state of Missouri.
Rada was an MS student on the Peromyscus ultrasound project. She is currently a PhD student in the lab.
Matt was an MS student in the lab on the rodent responses to intercropping biofuel feedstock crops project. He is currently a PhD candidate in Environmental Health Science at UNCG.
Kim was an MS student who examined the functional role of Peromyscus in an intercropped pine forest. She is currently a wildlife ecologist with HT Harvey and Associates in California.
Adam was an MS student on the bats and edges project. He currently works at the SAS Institute in Cary, NC.
Kitty worked on the Peromsycus ultrasound project at the Hastings Natural History Reserve. She graduated in 2010.
Melissa was an MS student working on the bats and water sources project. She is currently a zoo keeper at the North Carolina Zoological Park.
Jackie worked on fission fusion roosting in big brown bats. She is currently a technician at the University of West Virginia.
Mary was a post - doc on the California mouse project. She was co-advised by Cathy Marler at the University of Wisconsin. She completed her project in 2013 and is in Vet School in Saskatoon. She will be an research animal care Vet when she finishes.
