Adrienne Dale, Graduate Student, USA

Adrienne is a PhD student at Texas Tech University. She earned her BS in Wildlife Science at Virginia Tech and her MS in Conservation Medicine from Tufts University. Adrienne brings 8+ years of laboratory and field experience (the most recent 4.5 years being with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center in DC) to support her efforts tracking flying foxes and studying their ecology including diet, movement, and stress responses. She’s interested in pursuing a career that combines disease and animal physiology with international fieldwork in order to learn about the ecological processes and their intersections with human cultures. In her spare time, she’s an avid traveler and would love to be involved in community outreach and global health research.
