Amanda is a first year graduate student in the Primack Lab at Boston University where she studies the effects of climate change on the timing of seasonal biological events. A graduate of Carleton College, Amanda has worked as a field biologist on a range of projects and taxa, from monitoring the effects of biofuel harvesting on insect biodiversity to the reproductive success of woodpeckers following forest fires. For the past two years, Amanda has worked with long-term bird banding stations in the United States and abroad, conducting outreach activities for adults and children on the importance of long-term records for songbird conservation. As a new member of the Primack Lab, she has initiated a lab blog and utilized short videos to document and publicize the local effects of climate change.
