I earned an M.S. in Environment and Natural Resources from the Ohio State University in 2008 under the advisorship of Dr. Paul Rodewald. For my thesis research, I examined whether winter habitat quality, as determined by stable-carbon isotope analysis, has an effect on reproductive success in Yellow Warblers (Dendroica petechia; for more information, please see the project summary). As a bird bander and avian ecologist, I’ve been able to travel widely to work on various avian research projects including studying breeding bird distribution for the Pennsylvania and Ohio Breeding Bird Atlases, songbird migration at coastal and inland sites, winter survival and ecology in the southeastern US, nocturnal bioacoustics in Pennsylvania and Arizona, and distribution and ageing and sexing techniques on the island of Saipan. I’m an avid birder and a molt limit enthusiast.

 

My research interests lie primarily in songbird migratory behavior and ecology, seasonal interactions and carry-over effects, demography, and habitat selection during migratory stopover periods. I am particularly interested in how human activities affect bird populations, and how those populations have changed over time in response to increasing global temperatures and other environmental changes. As a Ph.D. student at the University of Toledo, I will be analyzing multiple large, long-term (50+ years), high-quality datasets from established bird banding stations. I hope to use these datasets to study how anthropogenic factors, in particular climate change, affect avian populations, movements, and behavior, and to provide results that will inform conservation efforts throughout birds’ annual cycles and geographic ranges, and to apply this to landscape level ecological conservation.
