Biography

I am interested in wildlife ecology, especially as it relates to climate change and other anthropogenic factors. Living in Southern California, I see first-hand the effects of human changes on the landscape, and how those landscape changes are affecting threatened and endangered wildlife species in our area, both short-term and long-term. The projects that I am working on are focused on habitat alteration (both destruction and restoration), and how bird species respond to this alteration. My field work involves intensively monitoring bird nesting ecology, marking bird populations to better understand survivorship, performing population surveys, and searching out wintering habitat.
