I am Hannah Partridge

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I work with Dr. Sara Gagné. My dissertation research uses a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods to study human-raptor interactions across North America, focusing primarily on black vulture populations (Coragyps atratus). 

I am originally from South Dakota, where I grew up in the Black Hills area. I received my B.S. in Conservation Biology from the University of South Dakota in 2017 and I received my M.S. in Earth Science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2021. I am passionate about improving human interactions with wildlife populations and educating the next generation of ecologists.
