I lead strategic research to inform conservation plans that have multiple benefits for people and wildlife. My research has included bird population and community responses to restoration, climate change impacts, and trade-offs with carbon sequestration. I work in riparian and wetland ecosystems in California’s Central Valley, and I supervise the long-term research programs based out of our Palomarin Field Station.
I earned my Ph.D. in Ecology at UC Davis, and conducted postdoctoral research at the UC Davis Museum of Wildlife and Fish Biology. I am currently a member of the Society for Conservation Biology and American Ornithological Society. I am also an Associate Editor for The Condor: Ornithological Applications.
Please reach out if you are interested in collaborating on a project or proposal. I am especially interested in working with graduate students on projects that build on the 50+ years of data collected at our Palomarin Field Station!
