Bryan S. Featherstone
B.S. - Fisheries and Wildlife, University of Minnesota
Bryan is a Ph.D. student under the advisement of Dr. Gonder. He is interested in working with Cercopithecus monkeys on the island of Bioko, Equatorial Guinea. More specifically he is interested in how the gut microbiomes of Cercopithecus relate to their niche differentiation and elevational range. This will require yearly field work collecting fecal samples in both reserves on the island.
Bryan started his career as a field research assistant working with different organizations including the University of Montana, USGS, USFWS, and the Forestry Service to collect data on various animals across the United States. He has collected data on small and large mammals, birds, invertebrates, vegetation and other organisms. In 2012, Bryan started his career with the Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program as the Moaba camp manager and continued to work with this organization for the next three years becoming the Moraka camp manager and finally working as the Director of the Moka Wildlife Center.
