I am interested in how ecological communities respond to global environmental change, and through my research I seek to identify concrete solutions for conserving biodiversity in human-dominated landscapes. In my dissertation research, I use a combination of field surveys, radio-telemetry, and network modeling to inform bird and plant-pollinator community conservation within Chilean timber plantations. Recently I have also started analyzing long-term bird population trends in California, drawing on 30 years of survey data collected at the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. I am passionate about environmental education at all levels and co-teach an undergraduate Ornithology class (BIO 121/221) and co-direct an afterschool outdoor education program for high school English Language Learners (www.meroscience.org).
