Sadie E.G. Ulman, M.S.

Research Associate

I received a B.A. in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin- Madison and a M.S. in Wildlife Ecology from the University of Delaware. In 2011, I joined Dr. Tuula Hollmen's Eider Lab and the Research Department at the ASLC. Currently, my projects in the Eider Lab focus on the physiological ecology and conservation ecology of marine birds. Under the Steller's eider reintroduction feasibility project, I assist with the study of habitat suitability of the central Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. Additionally, I am helping with an arctic project that incorporates stable isotope and fatty acid analyses to track spectacled and Steller’s eiders diets during the pre breeding and breeding seasons. I work on projects regarding habitat use and productivity of seabirds in the Resurrection Bay/Kenai Fjords area. Specifically, a study that uses still-image cameras to monitor productivity of Common Murres nesting on Barwell Island, and another that involves coastal seabird surveys in the Resurrection Bay area to determine species diversity, abundance, and habitat use. My general fields of interest are ornithology, avian habitat associations, conservation biology, and avian migration.
