I am a PhD candidate advised by Dr. Brian Olsen in the School of Biology and Ecology and Tom Hodgman at the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. I work as a collaborator on the Saltmarsh Habitat and Avian Research Program (SHARP), a long-term, regional monitoring effort for tidal marsh communities of the northeast.  I am also a fellow in the Adaptation to Abrupt Climate Change IGERT program. When I'm not at school I like to hike, practice acroyoga, and run around with my dog.

Research interests

My research focuses on the biogeography of tidal marshbird populations in coastal New England and mid-Atlantic states. My research explores avian population and habitat change under landscape scale-stressors such as sea-level rise and extreme storm events. I am also developing remote sensing techniques to create a region-wide map of tidal marsh vegetation to use in conservation work at the landscape scale.
