Auriel FournierI’m a PhD Candidate with the Arkansas Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at the University of Arkansas. I’m passionate about bird migration and wetlands and my research focuses on trying to understand how wetland management in the fall impacts different bird communities. My current focus is on rails, a type of secretive wetland bird. I’m also very passionate about diversity (race, gender, sexual orientation, etc) in science.
