I am a PhD candidate in the lab of Dr. Catherine Lindell. I am interested in conservation biology, restoration ecology, and ornithology. I have done research in Texas, Michigan, Kansas, Vietnam, and Panama. My Master's thesis focused on herbivory and seedling ecology of a threatened prairie plant, Mead's Milkweed. Now I'm back to bird work, studying avian ecosystem services in tropical forest restorations.
