Dr. Jordan Herman is a field biologist and avian ecologist. Jordan finished her Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Utah in 2020 where she studied interactions between parasites, predators, and mockingbirds at her field site in Argentina. Before moving to Utah, Jordan grew up in Madison, WI, and received her B.S. in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior from the University of Minnesota. Since then, Jordan’s studies of birds have led her to travel to incredible places all over the world, including Turkey, Ethiopia, Costa Rica, the Galapagos Islands, the Caribbean, and more. Currently, Jordan is a Conservation Biologist for HawkWatch International in Salt Lake City where she studies the biology and conservation of golden eagles. As a bird lover, Jordan has two northern bobwhites (Tuna and Tako, pictured above) and three chickens at home. She is currently incubating five quail eggs and is excited to grow her flock.
