Two new graduate students recently joined the Klicka Lab. CJ Battey graduated from UC Berkeley in 2010 with a double major in Integrative Biology and English, and is broadly interested in avian evolution and phylogeography. Outside of the lab CJ enjoys slack-key guitar and South American politics. Dave Slager obtained his MS in Wildlife Ecology from Ohio State University in 2011, and is broadly interested in evolution and systematics, especially avian phylogenetics, phylogeography, niche evolution, speciation, and biogeography. Dave is is a seasoned field ornithologist, and in his spare time enjoys birding and studying avian field identification, species distributions, and natural history. Welcome aboard!!
