Caitlin Davis, M.S.. Caitlin is the research project manager for the Golden Eagle research and monitoring team. email: caitlindavis at
Stephanie Galla, Ph.D.. Stephanie is interested in interdisciplinary conservation efforts for species in decline, and in particular, how genomic technologies can inform management decisions. She is 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 (Artemesia tridentata) and American Kestrels (Falco sparverius) and forecast how these species may respond to a changing world. email: stephaniegalla at
