Anne-Marie Hodge (PhD student, UW)
I graduated from Auburn University in 2009, and recently finished my Master's degree at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington. Here, I studied niche partitioning mechanisms between sympatric carnivores in the eastern Andean foothills of Ecuador. For my dissertation work at UW, I will be studying mesopredator release in the context of environmental productivity gradients in the Laikipia region of Kenya.
My work is supported through a Berry Biodiversity Research Grant and the NASA Space Grant Consortium.
