My research focuses on how human land use affects extinction
risk in fragmented landscapes. I am particularly interested
in wetland ecosystems and the wildlife that depend on them,
especially waterbirds. I primarily study movement behavior
as a key determinant for how anthropogenic landscape change
affects wildlife populations and their ability to persist in
altered environments. My dissertation focuses on the
Hawaiian gallinule, an endangered waterbird endemic to the
Hawaiian Islands, and whether urban development has impacted
their movement rates, population connectivity, and
extinction risk. As a doctoral fellow for Tufts’ Water
Diplomacy IGERT, I also study how ecological science can be
better integrated into modern interdisciplinary water
