Kelly Perkins

Kelly provides general research support for the NY Coop Unit since July 2016. Prior to this she worked as a zoologist for the New York Natural Heritage Program conducting surveys, managing data, and studying rare species in New York state. She attended the University of Delaware (B.S. wildlife conservation ’02) and West Virginia University (M.S. wildlife resources ’06). She also spent time as a seasonal technician for several research and government institutions studying birds and other wildlife. She has a background in ornithology, bat biology and acoustics, and wildlife inventory and habitat associations spanning many taxa. Her interests include wildlife research, data manipulation, and statistics.

Matthew Paufve

Matt Paufve

Originally from Rochester, NY, Matt earned a BS in Biology from Hobart College in 2013. He currently studies lake herring spawning habitat and restoration in the Great Lakes.

Catherine Sun

Cat Sun

Hailing from Delaware, Cat graduated from the University of Delaware in May 2010 with a B.S. in Biological Sciences with a Concentration in Ecology and Organismic Biology. During her undergraduate career, Cat studied nemertean genomics, assisted in horseshoe crab spawning surveys, and researched the effects of nonnative plants on spider communities. In the summer of 2010, Cat worked as a field research assistant for Delaware State University mist-netting veeries and dissecting their nests for leaf litter decomposition. In her spare time, Cat enjoys watercolors, reading modern philosophy, and adding to her insect collection.

Ecuador

Springer Vanessa

Vanessa is originally from the Bay Area, California and completed her undergraduate degree in Wildlife Conservation and Management from the University of Arizona. Her current research is on occupancy of tayra and co-occurrence dynamics between the Andean bear and other species in the cloud forest of the Ecuadorian Andes. She is also a graduate mentor for the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program which seeks to promote diversity in the field of conservation.

Alec Wong

Alec Wong

I am from Queens, New York. I completed my undergraduate degree in Fisheries and Wildlife with a concentration in Conservation Biology and a minor in Mathematics at the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 2013. At the Nebraska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, I involved myself in research concerning the biology and life-history of the invasive Chinese mystery snail (Bellamya chinensis). After participating in two urban ecology projects in New York City following my graduation, I joined the New York Unit. I am interested in quantifying the abundance of moose in Adirondack park, and investigating the effects and interactions of multiple environmental stressors on moose population dynamics and life history.
