After graduating from the University of Georgia, Anika worked across the US conducting field research relating to avian and small mammal ecology. She joined the Chalfoun Lab in 2011 as an MS student in the Wyoming Cooperative Research Unit within the Department of Zoology and Physiology to pursue her interests in disturbance ecology and wildlife conservation. Anika’s research investigates indirect effects of the burgeoning wind energy industry’s developments on breeding grassland birds in Wyoming.Download CV
