I received my B.S. in Biology from Canisius College, Buffalo, NY in 2011. As an undergraduate I studied avian migration with Sara Morris, examining patterns of mass change in songbirds during stopover and behavioral responses of warblers to nocturnal flight calls. I continued my studies in migration at the University of Delaware, Newark, DE where I earned my M.S. in Wildlife Ecology under Jeff Buler in 2013. It was during my studies as a master’s student that I began my interest in radar aeroecology, the central theme of my current Ph.D. work at the University of Oklahoma under Jeff Kelly. I am interested in migratory systems and techniques for answering broad scale behavioral questions. Currently I am examining tendencies of avian wind drift compensation, formation of nocturnal orientation fields, and large-scale phenological patterns of nocturnal migrants.
