Research Interests: I study a small endangered shorebird called the Piping Plover that nests on beaches along the Atlantic Coast. I am interested in population dynamics and how they fluctuate through time and in response to behavior, habitat, and how they varying through a species range. I also am interested in how migratory behavior is linked to other stages of the life cycle, and how that may affect population growth and ultimately conservation goals.
