Naomi Pierce

Naomi Pierce is one of five grant recipients of the second cycle of grants awarded from the Harvard Global Insititute (HGI). HGI grants are designed to support research initiatives that develop innovative solutions to global problems by drawing on collaboration of faculty within Harvard and with colleagues overseas. Prof. Pierce, in collaboration with Douglas Yu at the Kunming Institute of Zoology, will use DNA sampled from parasitic invertebrates (iDNA) to detect and track expansion and contraction in a full range of vertebrate species, which will provide indicators as to whether populations are growing or declining.
