Caitlin Ott-Conn

Caitlin completed her Master's Degree in Comparative Pathology at UC Davis. Her main focus is research in wildlife population health and diseases, and the implications for conservation and management.

Her research was with the federally endangered Amargosa Vole (Microtus californicus scirpensis). As part of a large state and federal assessment of the population health and stability, Caitlin determined the prevalence of disease within the population as well as establishing a baseline dataset of morphometrics and parasites.
