We recently welcomed a new MS student into the Burns lab, Luke Klicka. As an undergraduate, Luke worked in the lab, field, and museum on a variety of projects. He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota where he worked in the labs of Bob Zink and Keith Barker. He has also worked in the lab and in the field with his uncle, John Klicka. Luke is still exploring potential thesis topics, but his project will likely involve conservation genetics of an avian species.
