I have worked with undergraduate and high school students throughout my PhD establishing the Boulder Chickadee Study from: nest box building, chickadee wrangling, and project design. 

My goal as a mentor is to develop independent thinkers by giving students hands-on experience with the entire scientific process. I mentor by guiding students to develop their own research questions, troubleshoot methods, and think critically about their work.

I have mentored students in independent research studying:

Chickadee nestling

diet composition

Chickadee plumage
