Light Pollution Ecologist

I focus on how human activities affect our neighboring organisms. I am fascinated by how light pollution impacts the behavior and ecology of birds, marine systems and insects. I also have experience in climate change ecology and species distribution modeling. Moving forward, I am most excited to reach out to our community, starting a dialogue about science and helping others find their niche in our natural world. 

I received my Ph.D. in Ecology from the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology program at Cornell University. I have a M.S. from the Wildlife Ecology program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I also received my B.A. in Zoology and German.
