I am interested in how environmental conditions drive ecological communities. I am currently investigating the effects of winter conditions, specifically climate and food availability, on bird abundance, survival, and reproductive success.


To address these questions, I apply statistical models to big data to understand patterns of biodiversity at the continental scale.
