Opportunities to Expand Impact
Honors Student Researches Global Climate Phenomena
Elyce Gosselin came to the University of Idaho and found not only opportunities for research, but also faculty members willing to mentor her and bring her into their projects.
“They’re just so receptive to students,” she said. “There are endless opportunities to get involved.”
Elyce is part of a research project that is now being prepared for submission to The Wildlife Society Bulletin, as well as another research collaboration that has recently been submitted to the Journal of Arid Environments. She spent part of last summer in Alaska with the United States Geological Survey, studying the impact of climate change on birds. This summer, she was in Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique in order to study elephants for a crop-raiding project.
“It’s a cool feeling to be able to expand knowledge; to delve deeper and find answers to questions that haven’t been answered before, or haven’t been answered sufficiently.”
“Delve deeper and find answers.”
