Specialty

Visual and acoustic data collection in Oregon's near-shore ocean, impacts of anthropogenic noise.

Education

2013: B.S. Wildlife Management, Purdue University

Research 

My broad research interests are in animal behavior and ecology, specifically using acoustics to monitor animal spatial and temporal distributions and the impacts of anthropogenic noise on animal communication and behavior. My graduate research will focus on collecting baseline data (both visual and passive-acoustic monitoring) of marine mammal seasonality and distribution in coastal waters off Oregon and evaluating potential impacts of anthropogenic activities such as the development and operation of wave energy converters on species of concern
