Welcome to my website! I am a PhD student at the Centre for Ecosystem Science, UNSW Australia. I’m currently living in Australia with my Wife and our dog but am originally from upstate New York where I did my undergrad at Canisius College, Buffalo. I received a B.S. in Environmental Science and a B.S. in Mathematics & Statistics. I then moved to Florida where I completed a M.S. in Environmental Science at Florida Atlantic University.

My current research focuses on urban birds and urban bird diversity, with a key interest in the use of citizen science data, namely eBird, and how it can be applied to answer ecological questions. Check out my research page for more information. I’m supervised by: 1) Richard Kingsford, the director of the Centre for Ecosystem Science, 2) John Martin, wildlife ecologist at the Royal Botanic Gardens, and 3) Richard Major, principal research scientist at the Australian Museum.
