Hi! I’m Katie LaBarbera. I received my PhD in 2016 from the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology at UC Berkeley, spent a while studying treefrogs as a postdoc in the Acoustic Communication Lab at UMinnesota, and am now working to understand and conserve birds with the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory. 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 SFBBO or UMN 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!
