About the Event
Emily Filiberti is a current graduate student at the University of Maine. Her research is focused on understanding the annual survival of Golden-winged Warblers across their breeding range. This is a large-scale collaborative effort spearheaded and organized by the Roth Lab and the Golden-winged Warbler Working Group. Her fieldwork consists of trekking out to Tennessee, Kentucky, and Wisconsin and attaching year-long VHF coded NanoTags to male and female Golden-winged Warblers with the intention of collecting enough return rate data to analyze annual survival. This data will fill a critical gap in our knowledge of the species and will help to inform the listing decision (Endangered Species List) of this incredibly vulnerable warbler.
Emily is originally from northern Vermont, where her childhood consisted of getting deeply lost in her backwoods with binoculars in one hand and a Sibley’s field guide in the other. Her passion for avian ecology intensified during undergrad and through participating as a technician on various wildlife projects. Emily’s hobbies include long runs and puzzles.
