I am currently one of the project leads for the Sierra Nevada Bioacoustics Monitoring Program of Spotted Owls in California focusing on the southern region in Sequoia, Sierra, and Stanislaus National Forests.

I am broadly interested in wildlife ecology, behavior, and conservation, especially concerning birds. Particularly how animals interact with other individuals and their environment, migration, and adaptations to a changing landscape.

My Masters examined resource selection through the lens of vocalizations and movement data in a naturally fragmented landscape. Most recently, I worked for the U.S. Geological Survey with Desert Tortoises in the Mojave Desert studying population dynamics and habitat quality.
