I’m a biologist interested in animal migration, particularly in insects and bats and at high altitudes. I’m currently a research specialist with the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  I received my Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2014, and then worked as a postdoctoral scholar studying migratory bats with Justin Boyles at Southern Illinois University.  Before coming to Tennessee, I completed a Master’s degree in Biology (Ecology and Systematics) in the LeBuhn lab at San Francisco State University. My undergraduate degree was in Information Technology from the School of Business at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

While my personal interest in biology started at a young age, I started out on a very different path.  With a degree in business and IT, I worked in a wide variety of software product development and management positions at Hewlett-Packard  and Oracle as well as at a small Internet start-up.  Eventually I decided to switch gears and turn my interest in the natural world into a career.  During the transition period, I brought my corporate leadership experience to serve as a board member and then board president of the non-profit San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory
