Research Interests: After assisting with studies of marine mollusc protein synthesis, lizard DNA, tern growth, raptor homeranges, and swift diets at CSULB, I came to UCR and narrowed it down to the raptors. I'm currently taking a landscape-level approach and looking at their distribution in relation to urbanization. Two rounds of data collection down and one to go. I intend to present my preliminary findings at the Society for Conservation Biology conference this summer.
