I am a recent graduate of Arizona State University where I worked as a Research Fellow in the School of Life Sciences’ SOLUR Program. I am broadly interested in questions concerning evolutionary and population dynamics. To answer these types of biological questions, I employ a variety of mathematical and statistical techniques. I am currently working on topics in population biology and animal movement analysis. Specifically, I am studying population dynamics and movement patterns of adult lemon sharks (with Steve Kessel and Samuel Gruber). In addition, I am working on projects related to the population dynamics of sea lions (with Leah Gerber), spatial modeling of the American pika (with John Nagy, Andrew Nemecek, and Sky Arnett-Romero) and tortoise population modeling (with Jose Anadon). I have also just coauthored a paper with Jesse Senko, Leah Gerber and Selina Heppell comparing bycatch mitigation strategies for vulnerable marine megafauna.
In September, I will serve as a Fulbright Scholar working with Julia Baum (University of Victoria). After my time in Canada, I will start at PhD program in Population Biology at UC-Davis.
Outside of school and research, I spend time scuba diving, rock climbing, reading, hiking and hanging out with family and friends.
