Alyssa Davidge earned a Bachelor of Science in Wildlife and Fisheries Science with a minor in Biology from Penn State University in 2014. Prior to joining the Wunder lab, Alyssa spent several years as a wildlife biologist with a focus on endangered raptor species. In 2019, she returned to graduate studies at the University of Colorado, Denver and became a degree-seeking master’s student in the Department of Integrative Biology in Fall of 2021. Alyssa's research interests include urban ecology, movement ecology, migratory raptor phenology, and resource management policy. For my master’s project, Alyssa studies the breeding population of Cooper’s hawks in Denver County and how their patterns of occupancy compare to available resources shaped by socio-economic policy. She is interested in how cities can maximize the benefits they provide to urban wildlife, and how birds of prey use urban spaces.
