I am currently starting my 5th year as a PhD student at the University of Georgia's Odum School of Ecology, advised by Dr. Craig Osenberg. As an undergraduate at the University of Florida, I worked in several labs and sought out numerous opportunities to conduct research on the coast. I graduated from the University of Florida in 2014 with a BSc in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, and a minor in Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences.
While I'm currently cultivating my interests as a researcher, I also remain passionate about sustainability, teaching, and science communication. Because of this, I'm always striving to become involved with initiatives that promote public awareness of the environment, and that seek to unite people from diverse backgrounds.
As a graduate student, I hope to continue developing a suite of skills that will allow me to approach increasingly complex and interrelated questions using a range of analytical and experimental techniques.
