Jordan Boersma

Postdoctoral Fellow

I study the causes and consequences of elaborate coloration in birds using physiological, behavioral, and ecological studies. Often my interest in birds intersects with my passion of exploring remote and mountainous areas. This has led to collaborative work centered on avian biodiversity and adaptation to harsh climates.
