Research Interest:

Alejandra attended Carroll College in Helena, Montana and received a B.A. in Environmental Science in May 2008. She worked for the Montana Department of Environmental Quality before moving to Texas to pursue her Ph.D. at Texas A&M University under the direction of Dr. Miguel Mora. Her research interests include  wildlife ecotoxicology, avian ecology and conservation. Her dissertation focuses on determining seasonal variation of contaminant accumulation in migratory songbirds. Additionally, she is interested in the use of stable isotopes and their application in ecotoxicology. A better understanding of how contaminants impact individuals and populations during migration will aide in their protection and conservation.
