How do we harness new scientific knowledge and use it as a tool for change? In this program, Dr. Andrew Stillman will share new findings from ongoing research efforts and describe what it means for bird conservation. We will hear stories about the emerging pattern of giant wildfires in the Western U.S., elusive fire-loving woodpeckers of California, and new approaches to leverage eBird data for conservation policy across the continent.
Dr. Andrew Stillman is an Atkinson Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. A Western New York native, Andrew holds a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Biology from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and a PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Connecticut. His research program stems from an interest in applied ecology—studying wildlife and applying that knowledge to key questions in conservation and management. Current projects span the fields of disturbance ecology, global change, and citizen science while providing opportunities for student mentorship and science outreach.
