I am a PhD student under Dr. Brian Olsen in Ecology and Environmental Science. Before starting at the University of Maine I worked on a number of research projects focusing on passerine and waterbird breeding ecology, most recently on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. When I'm not at school I like to hike, bike, and play my guitar.

Research interests

My research focuses on the biogeography of tidal marshbird populations in coastal New England. I am working with several agency and university collaborators to collect historical datasets of marshbird surveys collected within our study area. My thesis objectives include developing models of marsh bird species and community change over the past 20 years using this historic dataset, and using remote sensing techniques to predict species occurance at different scales.
