Title: PhD Student
I am Ryo Ogawa, originally from Japan. I was studying agriculture in my undergraduate, but a wildlife conservation intern at Shiretoko peninsula during my sophomore made me interested in studying wildlife.
In 2014 I came to US and studied at University of Maine for non-thesis degree for two years. I moved to MSU to finish thesis master's degree, and am currently a PhD student working under Dr. Guiming Wang. My dissertation project is American white pelican's population dynamics, range modelling, and biomechanics of soaring-gliding strategies.
