Rachael Orben has worked almost continuously as a field biologist since graduating from Cornell University in 2002 with a degree in Biology. Working in biology has taken Ms. Orben to locations across the United States, Greenland, Palau, and the Antarctic. She has spent five summer seasons studying seabirds in Alaska, and is currently the field crew leader on St. Paul Island as part of the Seabird Telemetry component of the Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BSIERP). She is beginning her master's degree at the University of California Santa Cruz in the fall, and when not catching birds, she enjoys rock climbing and playing ultimate frisbee.
