Natalie Kerr
Assistant Research Professor of Biology

I’m an evolutionary demographer that uses empirical and theoretical approaches to explore trade-offs, life history phenomena, and population dynamics of plants, insects, and social organisms.

The primary focus of my research has been using novel techniques for data collection (e.g. RFID systems), statistical analysis (e.g. functional linear models), and model construction (e.g. voltinism models, structured population models) to investigate the effects of global change on insect and plant populations through a natural history lens. My research spans three areas: life history evolution, comparative demography, and global change biology.
