Hi! I’m Katie LaBarbera. I received my PhD in spring 2016 from the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at UC Berkeley, and I am currently hanging out at Berkeley working on the genetics of South American Ctenomys rodents. My PhD is in Integrative Biology, but only because they don’t give doctorates in Chasing Juncos All Over The Mountains. Before I came to Berkeley, I did research on House Wrens at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology at Cornell University.
I am interested in animal behavior, evolutionary biology, and anything involving birds.
Disclaimer: I speak only for myself, not for the MVZ or UC Berkeley or any subset of the general scientific community. If you don’t like something I say, I’m the only one to blame!
