I am currently a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology. I am working in the SILVIS Lab, with Dr. Anna Pidgeon. I am investigating the effects of recreational trails and trail use on breeding bird communities, nest success, and physiological stress.

I am also interested in radar ornithology. Weather radar can be used to track movements of migrating birds, which can be useful for both birders and researchers. I post nightly radar loops for the state of Michigan during Spring (and sometimes fall) migration. A primer on radar ornithology can be found here.

When I am not working on research, I enjoy spending time outside with my wife and two dogs, Corvus and Denver. I am also an avid home brewer. I brew small (<2 gallon) batches of beer. This has given me the chance to make many types of beer and improve my process for homebrewing. Follow my twitter @BeerBeak for my home brewing adventures!
