I completed a B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation at the University of Massachusetts and an M.S. in Fish and Wildlife Conservation at Virginia Tech. I am now working with Dr. Bill Kendall at Colorado State University exploring the population dynamics of greater sandhill cranes in the rocky mountain and mid-continent populations in the hope to evaluate structured decision frameworks and monitoring programs for managing sandhill cranes.
