Department of Environmental Conservation

Research interests include the spatial ecology of coastal and marine birds in the context of offshore renewable energy development

Pam has a BSc. in Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a MSc. in Biological and Environmental Sciences from the University of Rhode Island. For her MSc. research, she used satellite telemetry, habitat sampling, and spatial modeling techniques to investigate the movement patterns and habitat use of black scoters in relation to proposed development of offshore wind energy facilities in southern New England. Her Ph.D. research is in collaboration with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and involves tracking the movements of common terns and American oystercatchers in Nantucket Sound, MA.
