Graduate Research Topic
I am currently developing a research project that aims to investigate population dynamics and abundance of American Robins on a rural to urban gradient. I plan to conduct research on the ecology of these birds, looking at their distribution on a broad to local scale and gain insight into their role in wildlife diseases such as Lyme disease. With this research, we will hopefully expand the knowledge of birds as part of the pathogen-vector-host cycle in the distribution and dispersal of ticks.

  • Area of Study: Conservation Biology
  • Undergraduate Institute: Salisbury University

Graduate Research Topic
I am working on developing a project that examines how beech bark disease is impacting the biodiversity of the Adirondacks. Specifically, I'm interested in how different wildlife communities respond to the removal of American beech, and how that translates in effective forest management planning.
