The first Postdoctoral Fellow in applied connectivity conservation research and planning started her role in the Fall of  2020. Welcome UBC and BRAES Amanda!

Here is some information about her:

Amanda Liczner, PhD

I am landscape ecologist and conservation biologist currently working at a postdoctoral fellow at the BRAES Institute. My research project is understanding the challenges in connectivity for conservation planning. I recently completed my PhD in biology at York University (supervised by Dr. Sheila Colla) where I characterized the habitat for at-risk bumble bees in North America. I also completed my MSc. and BSc at York University studying  the effect of positive interactions on desert plants. On my free time, I’m an avid hiker, naturalist, and baker. My “quarantine hobby” has been self-teaching myself the violin.
