AOS Elective Councilor
“The AOS community includes many great role models in ornithology, representing all living generations and career stages. It’s connected to the earliest history of our field, and it remains prominent and influential, both in the discovery of new bird knowledge and in the broader study of biodiversity. AOS has both inspired me and enabled me to do better work in curation, mentoring, and research. For those reasons, membership is essential.”
