My research program is largely focused on mentoring undergraduate students in independent projects leading the senior theses and publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Most topics related to avian ecology are fair game, but I’m best versed in the areas of foraging ecology & supplemental feeding, migration and citizen science. I’m increasingly interested in research examining seasonal carryover effects.

Prospective undergraduate students: If you are a first- or second-year Cornell undergraduate student interested in pursuing independent research, contact me for an appointment to discuss your interests.
