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 that learn through hands-on work. I work to empower the students I mentor to view themselves as scientists by helping them develop their own research questions, troubleshoot methods, and think critically about their work.
Currently, I directly mentor and co-mentor undergraduates working on independent research projects detailed below.
