My training includes a Ph.D. from Cornell University in behavioral ecology, an interdisciplinary M.S. from Michigan State University in ecology, evolutionary biology and behavior, a B.S. from Iowa State University in physiological ecology, and postdoctoral research at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center. I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Smithsonian Center for Conservation Genomics where I have expanded my expertise in modern molecular approaches for understanding animal behavior and ecology.
Prior to my doctoral training, I taught as a Faculty Instructor of Conservation Biology in New Zealand and worked as a Research Ecologist on the California Channel Islands for The Institute for Wildlife Studies in wildlife conservation.
