Jenny Howard doing fieldwork on Española Island, Galápagos

Dr. Jenny (Howard) McKee

Welcome! Bienvenido! As a scientist, I am broadly interested in ecology and evolutionary science with a particular focus on movement and foraging ecology. I have considerable experience completing field work on remote islands in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and am passionate about seabirds and the outdoors. I finished my PhD in December 2021. Under an NSF GRFP at Wake Forest University, my PhD research investigated the environmental and individual predictors of foraging behavior in a pelagic seabird, the Nazca booby, in the Galápagos Islands. My work as a scientist extends beyond the field and lab: I’m eager to communicate science to other scientists and non-scientists through writing and teaching. I am currently the Editorial Fellow at Audubon magazine, through July 2022!
