Barbara Kagima

Position
  • Former Undergraduate Student
I was a Biology undergraduate at ISU, and during 2002-2005 I worked on population genetics of Podocnemis unifilis turtles from Colombia and Peru, and on maternal-effect genes related to sex differentiation in Chrysemys picta turtles from North America. I completed my Master’s in 2008 in the EEB program at ISU working on Wildlife Management with Dr. Sue Fairbanks. I completed my PhD at the University of Nebraska Lincoln.

I am now a Geospatial and Statistical Analyst for Concern Worldwide in Nairobi, Kenya.
