I am a professional ornithologist with expertise in avian behavior, ecology, and conservation biology. For 17 years I have been Director of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, a world renowned institute for research, education, and conservation of birds around the world. The Lab is a global pioneer in creating and delivering "citizen science" projects that engage tens of thousands of public citizens in research on bird distribution, movements, and population trends. My teaching background includes BioEE 2670: Introduction to Conservation Biology and other ornithology courses at Cornell.
