Research Technician

RESEARCH INTEREST:

Ornithology, avian population dynamics, and avian reproductive ecology.

I received my Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and Master of Science in Marine Biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks under the advisement of Dr. Tuula Hollmén. I joined the Alaska SeaLife Center in 2013 when I began my Master's thesis studying Black-legged Kittiwake (Rissa tridactyla, kittiwake) productivity in Resurrection Bay using remote monitoring techniques. Currently, my projects include continued monitoring of reproductive health of kittiwakes on Cape Resurrection using remote camera techniques, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of different types of still-image timelapse equipment for use in monitoring cliff-nesting seabirds, and using still-image timelapse cameras to monitor productivity and predator activity of Common Murres (Uria aalge, murre) on Barwell Island. I also assist in various other projects at the Alaska SeaLife Center, including seabird surveys conducted in the Resurrection Bay area and the Steller's Eider reintroduction program.
