Understanding how human development affects endangered bird species
A native of the Connecticut coastline, I spent my youth exploring the shores, marshes, and forests of the region, gaining an intense curiosity about Biology and Natural History. This interest led me to attended the University of Connecticut and obtained a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Now, I am continuing my work at UConn in the MS program in Biodiversity and Conservation Biology with the EEB Department (www.eeb.uconn.edu), studying how human actions shape the actions of endangered species.
