I study the ecology and conservation of native wildlife with a particular focus on forest species. I enjoy working on projects that push the boundaries of ecological theory, while also bearing direct application to active conservation challenges. Ongoing projects include: 1) monitoring songbird response to habitat management, 2) quantifying recruitment in breeding bird populations, 3) behavioral ecology of Golden-winged Warblers, and 4) habitat ecology and conservation of eastern forest pollinators.
