The Lahti Lab
A little about me
This is my first year as a Ph.D. student in biology at the City University of New York. I am native to New York City but by no means new to nature, I walk everywhere I go if time permits, and I like to think I'm the first to attempt an impression of a cross between a Dalek and a sooty shearwater.
Over the last five years, I've made a gradual transition from professional ensemble singer to avid avian voyeuse to student of biology, and I've never achieved a happier mix of penniless pursuits. There are many people to whom I am beholden for the encouragement and opportunity to do something completely different. You'll find them throughout these pages.
