I am an avian ecologist focused on habitat management and predator ecology. I earned a PhD in Fish and Wildlife Conservation from Virginia Tech in 2015 and a MSc in Watershed Ecosystems from Trent University in 2010. My current research is focused on developing a predictive model of Piping Plover habitat selection based on various sea-level rise and beach management scenarios, using Bayesian Networks. I am also researching red fox occupancy and habitat use in coastal landscapes, using a camera trapping study.
Other research projects:
Effects of off-road vehicles to migrating shorebirds on a barrier island in MD and VA
Estimating sika deer density using unique antler characteristics
Predator co-occupancy in coastal habitats
