I conduct field research on Aguiguan, a small, uninhabited island in the Northern Mariana Islands. This project aims to evaluates the effects of feral goats and Lantana camara on a the Pacific sheath-tailed bat, an endemic insectivorous bat.

I also examine patterns that are important to bat conservation at the global and regional scale by asking questions about which bat species are being researched, and how research effort relates to the extinction risk and phylogeny of bats.
