Tabitha A. Hughes



I am currently a PhD student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln studying applied ecology. My research  focuses on the spatial ecology and population dynamics of elk in western Nebraska. Following the completion of my degree, I hope to pursue a career in academia or research. My research interests include mammalogy, population ecology, and quantitative ecology. When I'm not collaring animals or trying to write code, I enjoy running, backpacking, hunting, and skiing.
