I graduated from ASU with a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a minor in Anthropology. I am very drawn to the fields of conservation biology and marine biology. The more specific areas of interest to me are the behavioral aspects and conservation of marine mammals, sea turtles, corals, and high biodiversity forest areas. I am broadly interested in studying animal behavior to see how it can be applied to fine-tune conservation actions and the policies that dictate them. I’m also interested in the relationship that conservation plays with local communities that surround these important groups. I am currently assisting Yaiyr Astudillo-Scalia in researching behavioral and endocrinological patterns in cetaceans.
