I received my BS in Wildlife & Conservation Biology from the University of Rhode Island in 2008, and spent the next several years participating in a variety of avian research projects throughout the US and Neotropics. From 2014-2016, I continued my studies at North Carolina State University where I earned my MS in Fisheries, Wildlife, & Conservation Biology. During that time I investigated how local- and landscape-scale factors influence the reproductive success and space-use of the Bachman’s sparrow, an indicator species for endangered longleaf pine woodlands in the southeastern US. As a PhD student in the Ecology, Evolution, & Behavior Program at Boise State University, I’m examining the causes and consequences of changes in migration and breeding phenology of American kestrels across North America.
