Dr. Liz Kalies graduated from Northen Arizona University in May 2010 and recently checked in from from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She has accepted a job with Bayer CropScience as a research scientist. The plan is to continue doing wildlife population/community modeling, but rather than studying the impacts of forest management, she'll be looking at the impacts of chemicals. Her job will be to help Bayer mitigate risk to animals and terrestrial ecosystems from the various agricultural pesticides that it manufactures. She notes that it will be an opportunity to work behind the scenes to protect wildlife at potentially large scales.
