Nicole L. Michel, Ph.D. 


I am a wildlife population ecologist and conservation biologist, with over 15 years of experience in academic, government, and non-profit environments.  I currently work as a Quantitative Ecologist with the National Audubon Society in San Francisco, CA. Previously I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Saskatchewan modelling climatic and land use drivers of feral boar (Sus scrofa) distribution and abundance across Canada with Ryan Brook, and modelling climatic and land-use drivers of aerial insectivorous bird declines across the Western Hemisphere with Bob Clark, Keith Hobson, and Christy MorrisseyI received a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Tulane University, in the lab of Thomas Sherry. My research interests fall into several broad categories: spatio-temporal wildlife population dynamics, global change drivers of wildlife populations, and community consequences of species increase, decline, or loss. I work with a variety of species and systems, including tropical, temperate, and boreal birds, mammals, and arthropods.
