Data Scientist


Spatial Data Science • Data Visualization • Geographic Information Systems

I’m part of the eBird Status and Trends team where I use data contributed to eBird to understand spatial and temporal patterns of bird distribution and abundance. In addition, I develop tools, data products, and training materials to allow others to easily access and effectively use eBird data for scientific and conservation applications. I care deeply about bird conservation, community science, open source software, and open data, and my role at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology offers the perfect combination of these passions.
