Nicole Krauss

Graduate Student
B.S., Beloit College; Ph.D., Washington State University, expected 2018

Nicole Krauss is a collaborating graduate student with the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, which seeks to understand and conserve migratory birds. She uses an integrative perspective from behavior, ecology and physiology to try to better understand ecological influences on female reproduction. Nicole focuses on two environmental pressures: food availability and predators, and the impact of these pressures on female black-throated blue warbler investment in offspring. 

Nicole earned her bachelor's degree in ecology, evolution and behavioral biology from Beloit College in 2011, and is currently working toward her doctorate at Washington State University.
