After graduating from the University of Vermont, I worked as a project assistant for YIO in restoration of a short-tailed albatross colony and became interested in bird studies. At Hokkaido University, I have studied reproductive and behavioral ecology (extra-pair paternity) of Japanese great tits (Parus minor) using nest boxes. At Niigata University, I was mainly studying conservational ecology of the reintroduced crested ibis (Nipponia nippon) in Sado, Japan. Currently at YIO, I am working on new fields of research such as bird migration and ecology of seabirds.
