Dr. Stephanie Galla
Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Boise State University
I am interested in interdisciplinary conservation efforts for species in decline, and in particular, how genomic technologies can inform management decisions. I am a postdoctoral research scientist at Boise State University with GEM3 in the labs of Dr. Sven Buerki and Dr. Julie Heath. Using a combination of genomic technologies and agent-based models, we aim to investigate the genetic underpinnings of adaptive capacity to climate change in sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) and American Kestrels (Falco sparverius) and forecast how these species may respond to a changing world.
In addition to conservation science, I enjoy creating science illustrations and am a cofounder of the Kindness in Science collective in Aotearoa New Zealand. Check out this site to learn more!
