This week and next we’re pleased to welcome a big group of new contributors to the blog. By way of introduction, I asked each of them to answer a few quick questions about him- or herself. —Jeremy
Who are you? Kathryn M. (Katie) Everson
Where are you? I’m an NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the University of Alaska Museum’s Mammals Collection. I’ve been in Fairbanks, Alaska since Fall 2012. I’m originally from Cincinnati, Ohio and I received my Bachelor’s degree from Ohio State.
What do you study? I study species delimitation and phylogeography in Madagascar’s tenrecs using a combination of genetic, geographic, and morphological data.
What do you do when you’re not studying it? I love graphic design — especially using design to make better scientific figures and posters. I also spend my time being a typical Alaskan: skiing, fishing, and wearing wool socks.
