Elizabeth Hadly’s research is focused on finding out the ecological and evolutionary responses of vertebrates to environments of the Holocene. She and her lab members use various techniques, including phylochronology, phylogeography, population genetics, morphology, field monitoring, geographical information system mapping, and remote sensing data. To support undergraduates, especially underrepresented minorities in science, Hadly developed a program in which students have the opportunity to master the integration of essential skills that are usually excluded from STEM programs: field work, lab work, data analysis, project synthesis, publication, community outreach, science communication, and team-building inside and outside of an academic setting. The program immerses students and instructors in common, yet internationally diverse field station environments.
