Amanda is currently working to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Kansas. Where she is studying the behavior of fossil birds as interpreted through their footprints and other traces. Amanda recently traveled to South Korea to study Early Cretaceous bird tracks and has published two papers on fossil bird tracks, one in the journal Palaios and one in the Journal of Systematic Paleontology. Next, she will study Early Cretaceous fossil birds and bird tracks in China.

"My experience at Lake State, preparing an Undergraduate Thesis and seeing the project through definitely helped prepare me for graduate school. The interaction between the professors and the students at Lake State is far more similar to the interaction between a graduate student and their graduate advisor than the typical undergraduate student / undergraduate advisor rapport; it's much more personalized. It definitely helped prepare me for grad school."

Jonathon studied the foraging behavior of white-tailed deer. Previous studies claim that deer have the ability to determine which vegetation will benefit them the most during different times of the year. In the fall, deer select diets high in energy content to maintain body mass and temperature. Nachazel's study explored the relationship between preferred white-tailed deer forage and energy levels found in the three types of vegetation. His results will assist managers in helping decrease mortality rates during the winter.
