Research Interests and Background
My research background is in Ornithology, specifically behavior, evolution and evolutionary ecology of birds. I have studied species limits in the Genus Oporornis using behavioral and morphometric analyses. I have also conducted research on the ecology of seabirds in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. My current research is on geographic and temporal variation in bird song, specifically the Mourning Warbler throughout its breeding range.
