Research interests

I am interested in how habitat features at multiple scales can influence reproductive success of birds, particular as it relates to imperiled or endangered species and habitat management. Currently my research focuses on Kirtland's warbler habitat use in Wisconsin.

Personal interests

My favorite pastime is birdwatching – it’s a great way to get out and enjoy nature, and it is also very enjoyable observing bird behavior and learning the natural history of each bird and their habitats. Any outdoorsy activity is fair game. I also dabble in photography, mainly while birding. When not outside exploring or staring at birds I enjoy reading good books and snuggling with my cats.
