Recent Kade Fellows

Since 2002, the Annette Kade Fellowship Program has provided the opportunity for French and German students to study at the Museum, and for AMNH graduate students to study at institutions across France and Germany. With the support of the Annette Kade Charitable Trust Fund, an extraordinary array of talented international students have taken advantage of the Museum’s cutting-edge facilities and technology, world-class collections and the expertise of our curatorial faculty and scientific staff. At the same time, AMNH graduate students at the Museum have gained invaluable experience working with expert scientists at top institutions abroad. The Annette Kade Fellowship Program thus strengthens the Museum’s institutional partnerships and helps to build a better trained and more interactive international scientific community.

The Annette Kade Fellows for 2016 are:

Daniel Dick - Annette Kade Fellow

Daniel Dick, a graduate student at Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen in Germany, has worked with Dr. Nancy Simmons, Curator, Division of Vertebrate Zoology. Mr. Dick worked on the project entitled “Testing the accuracy of quantitative ecospace modeling using an artificial extinction analysis of extant Chiroptera.” This project represents an innovative effort to test the efficacy of quantitative ecospace modeling methods. Daniel is very familiar with quantitative ecosystem modeling methods and has already published in this area.

Carina Klein - Annette Kade Fellow

Carina Klein, a graduate student at Museum für Naturkunde Berlin in Germany, is working with Dr. Neil Landman, Curator, Division of Paleontology. Her research project assesses “Ammonoid intraspecific variability throughout the complete ontogeny.” Carina wanted to pursue her studies at the AMNH because of Dr. Landman’s familiarity with this subject and also because of the unique collections of Late Cretaceous ammonites at the Museum. This will allow her to compare patterns of development between Carboniferous groups with species near the end of the Cretaceous.
