Introducing the WOS’s Three New Elected Councilors

Welcome and congratulations to the WOS’s three new Elected Councilors! Officially voted in at the 2022 WOS meeting in Santa Fe, New Mexico, this week, they will each serve a three-year term on the WOS Council, volunteering their time to help lead the society. They will be replacing Kerri Cornell Duerr, Desiree Narango, and Jason Luscier, whose terms end this year.

Laura-Marie Koitsch is the cofounder and an Assistant Director of the Erie Bird Observatory, which promotes bird conservation through avian research and public outreach in northwest Pennsylvania. She is the bander-in-charge of the Landbird Monitoring Program at EBO and has over a decade of experience working with birds in both research and wildlife rehabilitation.

Sushma Reddy is an Associate Professor in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology at the University of Minnesota and the Breckenridge Chair of Ornithology at the Bell Museum of Natural History. Dr. Reddy studies the biogeography and evolutionary history of birds and mentors undergraduate and graduate research students.

David Tan is a PhD student at the University of New Mexico and the Museum of Southwestern Biology. His research focuses on the biogeography, evolution, and conservation of the birds of Southeast Asia, as well as the coevolutionary interactions between birds and other taxa.

Thank you, Laura-Marie, Sushma, and David!
