I am a behavioral ecologist, with a particular focus on Neotropical birds. Most of my scientific research has focused on questions about social behavior and mating systems, but I also have a passion for improving our understanding of the natural history of Neotropical species. As a kid, I wanted to be a general zoologist but through graduate work have come to specialize in ornithology. Nonetheless, I am still very interested in all taxa of animals, and I am keen to take advantage of iNaturalist to help me improve my identification skills of North American fauna, especially invertebrates. My son and daughter are my main partners-in-crime for exploring nature around our home in central New Jersey.
