I am currently a PhD candidate studying at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences in the Miller Lab. I am passionate about conservation research, especially applied ecological work. Integrating ecology and social science to address conservation problems on private land is one of my main areas of focus.
In my non-working hours I enjoy hiking, birding, board games, growing vegetables, and spending time with my partner Evan, our dogs Fancy and Lupa, and other pets in our menagerie, including cats, newts, and a guinea pig. On the rare occasion we aren’t spending our down-time outside, I also love reading or listening to sci-fi novels, advocating for justice, cooking complicated vegetarian meals, and watching episodic crime shows.
