She has experience with field techniques and analytical methods and has publishing scientific findings within a diversity of disciplines including biogeography, conservation, landscape ecology, and resource and recreation management. Her research ranges from issues of residential development to recreation ecology to climate change. Since 2004, Michale has led a long-term project focused on low elevation boreal bird communities in the Adirondacks, changes to those communities over time, and vulnerability of these species and their peatland habitats in a warming climate. Michale obtained her M.S. (1997) and Ph.D. (2002) in Environmental and Forest Biology from SUNY-ESF, and retains adjunct status there.
