Ryan-Harrigan ryan07

My name is Ryan Harrigan and starting in 2015, I will be overseeing the Schreiber Grant application and award process, taking the reigns from my esteemed colleague Walter Sakai. I am familiar with the projects that have been funded through this award and take on this new position with great responsibility, so as to ensure the continuation of excellent scientific work that has resulted from this generous grant provided by Los Angeles Audubon.

I am a lifelong animal lover, particularly birds, and have studied them as a profession for my entire career. I received my PhD in 2006 studying the systematics of waterfowl (primarily that green-headed monster know as the mallard!) at Boston University. Since beginning a postdoctoral research position at UCLA, I have focused on understanding how infectious diseases such as West Nile virus affect both bird and human populations, and the environmental and social predictors that might help us to prevent and mitigate their effects in the future under climate change.

I look forward to this new and exciting position, and feel truly honored to assist in promoting exemplary scientific work with the help of the Los Angeles Audubon. Should you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

 

Ryan Harrigan, Ph.D.
