Evelyn joined the Carnaval Lab in April of 2022. She is currently in her final year in undergrad for her bachelor's degree in Biology at the City College of New York. In the lab, her project focuses on how the phylogeography of two South American birds, Pipra fasciicauda and Basileuterus culicivorus, can help understand how different species respond to climate change. She is currently a fellow at the CCNY Climate Policy program. In the future, she hopes to continue her work in molecular biology and genetics, as well as to learn more about how biodiversity is impacted by climate change.
