Elizabeth Abraham began work with PIERC in November 2018. She works with Dr. Eben Paxton on the Avian Malaria Genomics Research Project which focuses on the ecology and conservation of Hawaiian honeycreepers. She also coordinates field research on other bird ecology projects including avian disease monitoring in Kipahulu Valley and the movement ecology of the Hawaiian hawk. Her field work often involves capturing, tracking and obtaining blood samples from endangered Hawaiian birds in order to advance our understanding of avian malaria across the Hawaiian Archipelago, including the Big Island, Maui, Molokai, Oahu and Kauai.
