Summary Academic Interest: 

My academic specializations include animal biogeography, conservation biology, and habitat conservation. My dissertation research examines killer whale behavioral change in response to oceanographic indices such as bathymetry, tides and currents as well as human variables such as vessel quantity, distance and speed. My field research experience includes the use of non-invasive data collection techniques for wildlife research including the use of mobile remote sensing technology to record geospatial data, acoustic recording tags to measure received noise levels by whales, and scat detection dogs
