Zoe Ward

“I was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa, where I grew up alongside African wildlife. My love for all things animals was solidified in my adolescent years when I would go on daily game drives with my grandfather. Now I am an undergrad at the University of Minnesota, studying pre-Vet science. I am working towards a career in big-game conservation, where one day I will hopefully be able to work hands-on with wildlife.  My role within the Gomez lab is to help out in any task that needs an extra hand, things such as DNA extractions, data collection, etc. When I am away from the lab I enjoy spending my time with friends and family, traveling, and exploring the great outdoors.” 


If you’re interested in joining the lab, collaborating with us, or would like to support our research, please contact Dr. Andres Gomez at gomeza@umn.edu.
