About Me

I am a scientist interested in simple and compelling questions in ecology ― like why do some species occur on mountaintops and not others? ―  and conservation ― how do we prevent species on mountaintops from disappearing as a result of climate and land use change? To answer these questions, I use a variety of approaches including mark-recapture methods, spatial modeling, and natural history observations to better understand the factors that influence species distributions and population dynamics. I often focus on birds as a model system because they are well sampled globally, have life history traits that can be relatively easy to measure in the field, and I enjoy looking at them. I also like working in the tropics....
