Dissertation research: Bat and Insect Migration, 2010-2013, Uvalde, TX.
Study of mechanisms driving fall migration of Brazilian free-tailed bats and Noctuid moths in south Texas, including bat foraging activity at high altitudes. Partially funded by Bat Conservation International.

Bat Inventory Survey, Presidio of San Francisco, California, June 2008-July 2009
Led acoustic monitoring survey of various habitats in the Presidio to construct species list and determine habitat associations. Funded by the Presidio Trust.

Master’s thesis: Foraging Ecology of Bats in San Francisco
Led acoustic monitoring survey of 20 different natural areas throughout the city to identify factors contributing to species richness and relative foraging activity. Partially funded by the City of San Francisco Natural Areas Program, Department of Recreation & Parks.
