Biography

Dan is a Ph.D. student in the Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Department. He also works as a sea turtle conservationist for the Sea Turtle Conservancy. Dan received a BS in Wildlife Management from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA. He then spent over a year in Australia studying spectacled flying fox fruit bats. After moving back to the US, he completed his MS in Conservation Ecology from Frostburg State University, studying the impact of corridors (such as power lines and roads) on brown-headed cowbird brood parasitism of neotropical songbirds. His Ph.D. research is focused on using satellite telemetry to determine movement behavior, migration pathways, and habitat use by marine turtles in the wider Caribbean basin.

Research Interests

Using satellite telemetry to determine migration pathways and habitat use by marine turtles, and as an educational tool to raise awareness about sea turtle conservation.
