The Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (SW CASC) is excited to welcome postdoctoral researcher Kinzie Bailey to the team!
Kinzie’s position will center around providing objective scientific information for land, water, wildlife, and cultural resource managers and other interested parties to use in understanding the impacts of hotter droughts in the Southwest. More generally, she is interested in how a broad range of ecosystems, from coastal to mountain, will respond to these hotter droughts.
Prior to joining the SW CASC, Kinzie earned her bachelor's degree in Ecology and Conservation Biology from Montana State University and her Ph.D. in Natural Resources from the University of Arizona. During her Ph.D. program at the University of Arizona, Kinzie was a graduate student researcher with the Hu Lab. Most recently, Kinzie successfully defended her dissertation titled, “Water use strategies of woody species under a changing climate,” in May 2023 and has been working as a postdoctoral researcher with the University of Colorado - Denver.
The SW CASC looks forward to working with Kinzie on the production of actionable climate adaptation science!
