As a Research Ecologist at the Lab of Ornithology, I direct the field-based, student research and training program in avian biology at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, mentor student research, teach field courses, and provide additional, year-round training opportunities through my research program in the Caribbean Islands and locally in central New York at a migration banding station that I am working to establish.

My favorite bird
The boisterous Tui, native to New Zealand – they have their own pom poms to cheer each complicated note and awkward click and wheeze.
