Broadly, I aim to contribute to the mitigation of our species’ negative impact on Earth’s biodiversity through education and applied research. My graduate research focuses on identifying factors that may influence avian population viability, specifically: pollution and habitat fragmentation. Initial research (for MS degree) quantified mercury levels in avian species at Arctic, Temperate and Sub-Antarctic latitudes to provide baseline environmental mercury values across differing trophic levels and proxomity to potential point sources. More recently, I am investigating population connectivity among Greater Sage Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) populations in Northwestern Wyoming using population genetic-based analyses. The results of this work will help to inform conservation and management decisions of Sage Grouse populations in Wyoming.
