Hall Of Fame

Bridget Conneely (former MSc student, UBC)

Bridget Conneely (former MSc student, UBC)

Bridget Conneely earned her MSc with Jake through the University of British Columbia in 2011. Through the Gorongosa Restoration Project, Bridget worked to understand the influence of fire on resource selection by buffalo and wildebeest recently reintroduced to Gorongosa National Park. Bridget is now working for the Wildlife Conservation Society's Toronto office.
Ceicil Otieno (former GIS technician, Mpala)

Ceicil Otieno (former GIS technician, Mpala)

Ceicil Otieno conducted his student attachment with us from the Kenya Institute of Surveying and Mapping. Under the wise tutelage of George Aike, Ceicil worked to tile, mosaic, georeference, and classify over 400 aerial photos of Mpala and neighboring ranches in Laikipia.
Clint Atkinson (former research technician, UW)

Clint Atkinson (former research technician, UW)

Clint Atkinson worked with us as a technician on the statewide moose project. From humble beginnings sorting moose kidneys under the watchful eye of Brett Jesmer, he now works in the enviable position of large carnivore biologist for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department out of Lander, Wyoming. Way to go Clint; mind those ursids.

Corinna Riginos (former Berry postdoctoral fellow, UW)

Corinna Riginos (former Berry postdoctoral fellow, UW)

Corinna Riginos has recently moved to Jackson, Wyoming, where she’ll have the extremely exciting and wholly unprecedented opportunity to create a research and outreach program through her position as Research Director for Teton Science Schools. Despite working as a postdoctoral associate in our group for a tragically short period of time, we often claim credit for her professional success in the company of folks who don’t know any better. Good luck up there Corinna!

Janet Maclean (former MSc student, UBC)

Janet Maclean (former MSc student, UBC)

Janet Maclean earned her MSc with Jake and Roy Turkington through the University of British Columbia in 2012 and is now a PhD student at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. Janet’s work demonstrated a heretofore unappreciated and (dare we state) pretty darned cool phenomenon: seed and seedling consumption by rodents had effects comparable to those of large ungulates on the demography of a monodominant savanna tree. Chalk one up for the charismatic microfauna!
