Assistant Director, Center for Avian Population Studies and Ecological Data Science Program Leader
Statistics • Quantitative Ecology • Citizen Science
I develop statistical methods that help us learn more about the natural world. At the Cornell Lab I analyze data from the eBird project, developing analytical approaches that uncover patterns in the data and increase our knowledge about birds. eBird is a rich dataset of bird observations contributed by thousands of people around the world. By analyzing it in new ways, we can discover new knowledge about birds. This knowledge can inform conservation decisions, helping us to develop effective and targeted conservation plans.
I also coordinate the Ecological Data Science Program within the Center for Avian Population Studies.
