In addition to research and teaching, I aim to enrich the experiences of other academic community members through service. Academic service occurs at various levels; here are some ways in which I have contributed to the academic community at Cornell and to various academic societies.

I played the role of Hallux Che-bek and helped organize the 2014 JSAC Quiz Bowl at the Estes Park meeting in Colorado. I am actively engaged in the American Ornithologists’ Union (AOU) as chair of the AOU Student Affairs Committee and a member of the AOU Collections Committee.
