Quantitative Invasion Ecology

in the Lockwood Lab at Rutgers University


I am a doctoral student in the Graduate Program in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University. I research invasive species and how their impacts change over time. I am also interested in how the scientific community studies these impacts and the major geographic and taxonomic trends in research efforts.

I am the treasurer for the Ecological Society of America's Student Section.

I have enjoyed cultivating an art practice alongside my scientific research. A selection of my embroidery work is here.
