Biography

I grew up in Maryland and have lived on the east coast for my entire life. Before coming to Maine, I lived and worked on Cape Cod, MA contributing to research to protect cetaceans. I love animals and have a dog-ter, Mocha, as well as two snakes and a bearded dragon. I love exploring, traveling, and reading non-fiction books like the nerd I am!

Research Interest

I am very interested in using remote sensing to protect and learn more about wildlife. Previously, I investigated remotely sensed acoustic data for NOAA in order to assess compliance with National Park Zone laws in Australian marine parks. My research at UMaine focuses on utilizing drone imagery to collect information on population and habitat use for colonial nesting birds in coastal Maine. We will be collaborating with other departments on campus as well as state and federal scientists.
