My name is Mike and I am Jenna's academic advisor and research collaborator during her master’s degree at the University of New Mexico (UNM). I study patterns and processes of avian diversification. I’m broadly interested in all levels of bird diversity across the globe. I received my B.S. in 2004 at Cornell University, after which I worked in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Macaulay Library from 2005 to 2007. I earned my PhD at the University of Kansas in 2013 where I studied the diversification of the tropical Pacific avifauna. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the American Museum of Natural History before I joined the faculty in the Biology Department at the University of New Mexico as an Assistant Professor and Associate Curator of birds in the Museum of Southwestern Biology.
