Biography

I received a B.S in Environmental Sciences from the University of Vermont in 2011 and spent the following 4 years exploring the field of wildlife biology through seasonal research positions. My current research focuses on the dispersal behavior of juvenile Yuma Ridgway’s Rails (Rallus obsoletus yumanensis).
