Research interests

I have a background in wildlife conservation, marine biology, behavioral ecology, landscape ecology, statistics, education, and science communication. Most of my work focuses on bridging the science-management gap using satellite-derived indices to inform management strategies across various taxa. I collaborate directly with managers and agencies to ensure my work results in actionable conservation initiatives. My current work broadly focuses on mapping bird biodiversity in the U.S. for conservation using remotely sensed data.

Personal interests

My interests include spending time with my two dogs, reading, MMA, cross-country skiing, running, climbing, swimming, backpacking, and paddling. I also play the ukulele, embroider, brew kombucha, make ravioli from scratch weekly, and am adeptly skilled at keeping houseplants alive. I am a certified PADI SCUBA Instructor and spend at least one weekend a month teaching for a local Madison company.
