Biography

Breanna is a wildlife biologist and ecologist, specializing in ornithology. She is compelled by the co-existence and mutual benefits of humans and wildlife in agroecosystems and is committed to working to find solutions that benefit both people and wildlife. Her research has addressed the role of birds on farms as pests and pest control agents, and she has worked on projects investigating the important role farmland plays as habitat for California birds. With the USDA Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program, she investigated the implications of agricultural land-use and pest management practices on raptor ecology and conservation. Breanna is excited to be part of UC ANR where she can develop a research and extension program that has the power to increase knowledge and adoption of management practices that promote ecological sustainability and increase farm viability in California.
