Kris Bovy is completing her Ph.D. in Anthropology at the University of Washington. Her work investigates how waterbird populations in the Pacific Northwest may have been affected by human predation and natural events in the past, using bird remains from shell midden sites. This research will both add to our understanding of the importance and use of
waterbird populations by native peoples in the Northwest Coast, and have broader biological implications. Her work has been funded by an EPA Science to Achieve Results (STAR) fellowship and the National Science Foundation.
