Ethan Linck

Ph.D. Candidate, UW Biology

I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in the Klicka Lab at the University of Washington Department of Biology, where I study the evolutionary genetics and ecology of mountain birds. I’m also a freelance writer whose work has appeared in the The Los Angeles Review of Books, Jacobin, and The Stranger.

I spend my time thinking about how landscapes shape the processes responsible for biodiversity, and how culture, politics, and the history of science shape our relationship with the natural world. You can read more about my research here, or view my CV here.
