Kendall Calhoun named 2023 Smith Program Fellow

Congratulations to Brashares lab member Kendall Calhoun for receiving the 2023 Smith Program postdoctoral Fellowship!

Kendall Calhoun was recently named a 2023 Smith Program postdoctoral fellow! Kendall plans to expand upon the work he began in his dissertation to examine how wildfires affect wildlife across different Californian ecosystems and measure how these changes may go on to impact interactions between wildlife and surrounding human communities.

As a fellow, Kendall will work jointly with Justine Smith’s Lab at UC Davis and Brett Furnas at the California Department of Fish & Wildlife (CDFW) to complete this project.
