In 2003, I completed my B.Sc. in Wildlife and Fisheries Science from Penn State and in 2006, I graduate from the State University of New York, ESF, with my M.Sc. in Wildlife Management. After finishing my degrees I worked in wetland conservation for the state of Delaware before deciding I wanted to explore ecosystems around the world. I spent the next several years traveling and working in places such as Argentina, the Northern Mariana Islands, Australia, Thailand, and Puerto Rico.
In 2010 I began my PhD at Florida International University under Dr. Ken Feeley working in Manu National Park, Cusco, Peru. My dissertation research focuses on two main questions:
1) How will tropical ecosystems respond to ongoing climate change? and
2) What determines species' range limits?
After finishing my PhD in 2015 I was a Post-doctoral Researcher at Colorado State University and part of the Ecology of Bird Loss collaborative research group. I investigated the role of avian seed dispersal in maintaining ecological structure and function in the Northern Mariana Islands.
In May 2017 I joined Carla D'Antonio at University of California Santa Barbara as a Post-doc investigating ecological feedbacks and alternate stable states that may affect regeneration of tropical forest on the Big Island of Hawaii.
In summer 2019 I move to Austin Peay State University in Clarksville TN. My current research projects are focusing on how changing climates alter temperate forest plant communities.
