Andrea (Andie) Carrillo

Andie Carrillo manages the Zoology Prep Lab, where she prepares skins, skeletons, tissues, parasites, and other vertebrate materials for the zoology collections. Her primary job involves preparing hundreds of specimens a year, ranging in size from hummingbirds to giraffes. She also trains new volunteers on vertebrate prep techniques and engages in public outreach. The prep lab Andie manages is well-stocked and ready for animals of all sizes. It includes a dermestarium in which bones are prepared, two hoods for working with chemicals, and a necropsy table for our extra-large specimens.
