My name is Rachel Fovargue, and I’m a new PhD candidate in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department at UTK.

I attended the College of William and Mary as an undergraduate student and received a BS in Biology and Chemistry there in 2009. Since then I have interned with NMFS-NOAA, a wildlife rehab center on Vancouver Island, and the National Training Center for USFWS. Most recently I worked as an educator on a sailing vessel in San Francisco.

My undergraduate thesis looked at combining metapopulation dynamics with Habitat Equivalency Analysis.

I’m interested in combining economics with habitat preservation techniques in my graduate research.
