I am a member of BRP’s team of research analysts. I received my B.S. degree in biology with a concentration in ecology and evolutionary biology from Cornell University in 2010. I graduated with an honors distinction for my thesis work on the calling behaviors of Common Loons (Gavia immer). With BRP, I primarily work to identify patterns in baleen whale occurrence along the U.S. East Coast and explore how environmental and anthropogenic factors influence whale populations.
