Amanda is currently working to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Kansas. Where she is studying the behavior of fossil birds as interpreted through their footprints and other traces. Amanda recently traveled to South Korea to study Early Cretaceous bird tracks and has published two papers on fossil bird tracks, one in the journal Palaios and one in the Journal of Systematic Paleontology. Next, she will study Early Cretaceous fossil birds and bird tracks in China.

"My experience at Lake State, preparing an Undergraduate Thesis and seeing the project through definitely helped prepare me for graduate school. The interaction between the professors and the students at Lake State is far more similar to the interaction between a graduate student and their graduate advisor than the typical undergraduate student / undergraduate advisor rapport; it's much more personalized. It definitely helped prepare me for grad school."

Student Research...

Sault Ste Marie, Michigan

Lisa researched the use of Pointe aux Chenes beaches in St. Ignace, Mich., as an important stopover site by migratory birds. Her study determined that 34 migratory species used it as a stopover site; 50% were shorebirds and about 24% were ducks. She also found that the loggerhead shrike, an endangered species, use the beaches as a stopover site as well. Her results will help preserve Pointe aux Chenes for the millions of migratory birds.
