Graduate Research Assistant
Claire’s research focuses on migratory bird ecology and conservation, including songbird migration phenology, stopover behavior, and effects of free-roaming domestic cats on birds during the non-breeding seasons. Before arriving at UMCES, she completed her M.S. on Cerulean Warbler habitat use in managed forests. She devotes most of her spare brain cells to thinking up bird puns.
