I am a PhD student at Colorado State University in Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology. My research focuses on the population ecology of waterfowl in flood-irrigated agricultural landscapes. My interests broadly lie in the realm of population ecology with a specific focus on waterfowl. I am interested in how site-level properties scale up to become population-level processes and how cross-seasonal effects influence population dynamics. I have conducted field work from the YK Delta of Alaska to central Mongolia and currently work in North Park, Colorado.
