Karen Bailey

Carson Environmental Science


Karen graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Biology in 2008. She then traveled to Nan, Thailand to teach English to 5th and 6th graders. She returned to her native California to work for an environmental nonprofit and tutor middle school students. However, still struck with the travel bug, she obtained a post graduate certificate in Conservation Biology from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. She is now back in the United States at the University of Florida in Gainesville. She is working on a Ph.D. in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation and has spent a year conducting her research in Swaziland; examining ecosystem services of small mammals in an agricultural mosaic.
