Katie Duryea teaches Biology at Southern New Hampshire University. She also is involved in a research project to survey amphibians in the Manchester area for chytrid fungus – a fungus that can threaten amphibian populations. Before teaching at SNHU, she did postdoctoral work at Lund University in Southern Sweden where she studied the reproductive behavior and genetics of damselfly insects.
