I am in the 1st year of my Master’s Program at the University of New Hampshire, under the guidance of Adrienne Kovach (UNH).  My research is focused on adaptations in nesting behavior and ecology of female Saltmarsh Sparrows to tidal flooding. I am also conducting experimental trials of floating habitat islands as a potential management option to increase the reproductive success of the species by creating nesting habitat that is free of tidal flooding.
