About Winifred F. Frick, Ph.D.

Winifred F. Frick is a postdoctoral fellow affiliated with the Department of Environmental Studies at University of California, Santa Cruz and the Center for Ecology and Conservation Biology at Boston University. Her research focuses on vertebrate ecology and conservation with an emphasis on behavior, ecology, and conservation biology of bats. She currently has a Bioinformatics Postdoctoral Fellowship from National Science Foundation. Her fellowship research in radar aeroecology focuses on using radar technologies to understand aerial ecology of bats. She received her Ph.D. in 2007 from Oregon State University, where her doctoral studies focused on patterns of species distributions and island biogeography of bats.

Her research on the population impacts of disease-related mortality from White-Nose Syndrome in bats in northeastern USA was recently published in Science, and was covered widely by international and national print, web, radio and TV news media, including NPR's Science Friday.

Her other research interests include studies on foraging ecology of desert bats in northwestern Mexico and international conservation efforts. Frick has eight publications in peer-reviewed journals, including Science, Journal of Animal Ecology, Ecological Applications, Global Ecology and Biogeography, Journal of Biogeography, Oecologia, and Journal of Mammalogy.
