I am a Massachusetts-based researcher, naturalist, and particular lover of all things avian, marine, and botanical! Beyond the northeast US, I’m originally from the Gower in south Wales, and I’ve also studied in Ireland and spent time on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Most recently, I’ve been working on a project investigating baleen whale chemosensory foraging cues and their potential use as a method of remote sensing, as well as on gull population ecology research based in Maine. My research background is in varied areas of marine science, including population genetics, fisheries, and carbonate chemistry, and I previously wrote a thesis investigating patterns of local adaptation among periwinkle snail (Littorinidae) species and populations.

I'm also reasonably familiar with the general flora of the northeast US (though with a lot still to learn), and I'm very familiar with certain species -- sumacs and Vinca periwinkles are some of my favourites!
