Kathryn P. Huyvaert
Dr. Kate Huyvaert joined the Faculty at CSU in 2007. Research questions that she investigates are typically about population- or individual-level problems in ecology. The primary research focus in Dr. Huyvaert's lab is in wildlife disease ecology and she and her students apply both field and laboratory techniques to questions about pathogens and parasites that affect host populations of wild animals, especially birds. In addition to research in disease ecology, Kate works on projects that focus on the behavioral ecology and conservation of threatened and endangered species, particularly seabirds. In addition to courses in wildlife disease ecology, Kate teaches courses in project design and natural resource measurements in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology.
