My research examines how global change
drives ecological communities
I use big data and statistical models to understand patterns of biodiversity across North America.
My doctoral research in Jim Clark's lab at Duke University focused on understanding avian biodiversity across North America using citizen science data and statistical modeling. My research ranged from understanding and integrating multiple datasets, to examining large-scale patterns in winter abundance, to identifying species at risk of nest parasitism from cowbirds.
