Urban Behavioral Ecology and Education Research
at the University of New Hampshire
Hi! I am Karina Sanchez!
I am a first-generation college student and a proud Latina in STEM! I am currently a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of New Hampshire. My research interests fall within two domains: 1) using research questions to understand wildlife behavioral responses to urbanization and 2) biological education research to create inclusive higher education ecosystems. Combined, I plan to continue to use my urban ecological research as leverage to increase the participation of underrepresented groups in biology by providing paid opportunities for students to learn the foundations of ecological research and measure the outcomes of these experiences. Check out my research page for more information on my recent work!
