I'm Max and I love pikas! Pursuing research has been an integral part of my college education for the past 3 1/2 years. My research has focused on changes in the distribution of climatically suitable habitat available to the American pika. I have worked closely with Dr. Chris Ray for this research, and cannot express enough gratitude to her, the EBIO department, and the various other institutions that have come together to provide me with the opportunities to do field research in Colorado's beautiful alpine settings.
