Kathleen Kerwin graduated in 2012 from Rutgers University with a double major in Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources, and Evolutionary Anthropology. She stayed for a master’s degree in Ecology and Evolution, and graduated in 2014. After finishing with a seasonal position working for the Bureau of Land Management in central Oregon as a Conservation and Land Management technician, she moved back to NJ to work full time at Rutgers as a Program Associate for Dr. Brooke Maslo. Kathleen helps manage research projects involving bats and migratory shorebirds, and manages seasonal wildlife monitoring at a restoration site. She also helps run outreach programs for the public involving backyard wildlife habitat and the bat species of NJ. Besides working, Kathleen enjoys traveling, birding, hiking, and good beer.

M.S., 2016
Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources
Karen received her Bachelor’s (2012) and Master’s in Ecology & Evolution (2016) from Rutgers University. She is interested in wildlife and habitat conservation, particularly in how GIS can be used to address these issues. Her previous work has encompassed using species distribution modeling to examine the effects of major storms on coastal habitat, as well as to develop habitat management tools for threatened forest and shrubland birds, beach-nesting birds, and the diamondback terrapin. She has also worked in extension using GIS to facilitate green infrastructure projects to mitigate water quality and flooding issues in New Jersey communities. She currently works as a GIS Specialist with The Nature Conservancy’s Long Island chapter.
