I am a Postdoctoral Associate at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. I study avian migration, focusing on understanding the drivers of change and flexibility in migratory behavior. My work straddles ecology, evolution, behavior and conservation, and I believe in taking diverse perspectives—from individuals to flyways, tracking to remote sensing, acoustics to genomics.
