I grew up near Denver, Colorado and was spoiled by having opportunities to be close to nature early in life. More specifically, I discovered an interest in birds and never looked back. Besides drinking egregious amounts of coffee, you are most likely going to find me birding, looking for amphibians, or taking pictures.
My research, in brief, involves developing remote sensing tools for monitoring colonial nesting birds, focusing on seabirds and wading birds, along the coast of Maine. This research is collaborative and our team will examine the quality of bird survey data collected via different remote sensing systems for application in marine conservation.
