Carolyn Miller

Advisor: Morty Ortega


Carolyn describes herself as a generalist. She received her BS from SUNY-ESF in Syracuse, NY and her research interests involve endangered species, human impact and animal behavior questions. Some of her previous work experiences include a sexual selection study in fruit flies, a lemur genetics project, and a study looking at how reductions in resources influence  South Hills Crossbill populations. Carolyn has also assessed reintroduced river otter populations, and surveyed endangered species population status. She also enjoys studying current ecological issues and controversial topics.


At UConn, she will be researching the consequences of diminished maternal care on rhinoceros calf stress-levels and social skills. As a researcher, Carolyn is always interested in collaborating with other motivated researchers and expanding upon her current knowledge.
