Emily Khazan

Emily Khazan is a Ph.D. candidate in Interdisciplinary Ecology at the University of Florida’s School of Natural Resources and Environment. While earning her master’s degree in biology studying giant damselflies in Neotropical rainforests, Emily’s mind was opened to the diversity, complexity, and wonder of these native forests. Prior to starting her Ph.D., Emily worked at a small field station in Costa Rica, conducting research and monitoring projects on a variety of taxa. Emily continues to work with the station to implement projects that both provide educational opportunities for biology students, and data to local land managers and scholars. Her Ph.D. research explores the forms and functions of butterflies in the Colombian Andes. Emily is a dedicated researcher, keen on exploring patterns and processes of the natural world to better understand and protect the earth’s biological diversity.
