I am broadly interested in impacts of human-induced global change on species distributions and interactions. My research focuses on shifting avian community dynamics following anthropogenic land use change (e.g., urbanization, energy development). I am currently interested in expanding the use of satellite remote sensing for monitoring biodiversity in the face of rapid global change.
When I’m not in front of a computer I love getting outside with my husband and two sons. I enjoy gardening, martial arts, and running. Other interests include linguistics, science fiction, travel, and taco trucks.
