Seabird conservation; endangered species research; remote sensing


As an itinerant biologist, I studied seabirds in both hemispheres, then spent several years as Program Coordinator for the citizen science program, COASST. For my MS, I investigated the use of satellite imagery to count nesting albatross from space. My current work in the Seabird Oceanography Lab is an extension and expansion of this effort in Asia and Hawaii.

In addition to this work, I serve on several committees part of the Pacific Seabird Group, and provide program support to the University of Washington College of the Environment and the Alaska Fisheries Science Center Resource Ecology and Ecosystem Modeling Program.
