I am a doctoral student in the Crow Research Group within the Department of Biological Sciences at Binghamton University. I’m currently
studying the social interactions and transmission of learned behavior in
a wild population of American crows (Corvus brachyrhynchos).
While interested in birds, I consider myself a naturalist with a
particular emphasis in Kingdom Animalia. During my time as an
undergraduate at CSU I was involved with field and lab research, as well
as volunteer work that included mountain lions (Puma concolor), honey bees (Apis mellifera), horned lizards (Phrynosoma hernandesi), sharp-tailed grouse (Tympanuchus phasianellus), gray wolves (Canis lupus), and Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis).
My insatiable curiosity is what drove me to science and my love for
nature is what keeps me motivated. My interests outside of behavioral
research include illustration, sculpture, photography, horseback riding,
falconry, museum prep, and exploring.
