I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Movement Ecology Lab (CEAB-CSIC and CREAF-UAB), where I work on questions arising in ecology, law, and public policy related to human mobility, social segregation, international migration, forced migration, stochastic search strategies, and the spatial analysis of movement patterns generated by a variety of different organisms.

My training is in a combination of ecology (B.S., Cornell University, 1997), law (J.D., Cornell University, 2003), and demography (Ph.D., Princeton University, 2013). In addition to my research, I have managed refugee relief projects in Bosnia, Albania, and Kosovo, and I have worked as a protection officer for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees in Kosovo and Montenegro. I have also served as a law clerk, mediator, and staff attorney for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
