What’s New?

September 2017

I began a post doctoral researcher position at the University of Missouri developing species distribution models using Bayesian networks with Dr. Lisa Webb.


May 2017

I graduated from Tulane University with a Ph.D.! You can now call me "Dr. MacPherson" and as of October you can order a print copy of my dissertation here, or e-mail me for a .pdf.


March 2017

I successfully defended my Ph.D. in the department of Ecology & Evolution at Tulane University. You can watch my defense at you leisure with credit to the power of modern technology.


August 2016

I was on the winning team (and the only female finalist contestant) for the North American Ornithologist Congress IV quiz bowl (Washington, D.C.)! 


Check out my poster from NAOC 2016! I presented some results from my second chapter which tackles how boreal versus austral migrant flycatchers may track different types of resources in their annual cycles.
