I’m Kelsey Vitense, a master’s student in the interdisciplinary Quantitative Ecology & Resource Management (QERM) program at the University of Washington. I am currently working with Aaron Wirsing and Jim Anderson on the effects of habitat loss and generalist predation on population cycles. My broader research interests include modeling and simulation of dynamical systems and Bayesian methods of inference. Prospective students may feel free to contact me about my experience in the program.
UPDATE: I am now a QERM alum! I am currently studying regime shifts in shallow lakes at the University of Minnesota, but I’m still happy to talk with anyone about QERM.
