I am a PhD candidate in the Graduate Program in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University and visiting graduate student at the UC Davis Bodega Marine Lab.

I synthesize evidence on research bias within invasion ecology.

I am the vice chair of the Ecological Society of America's Student Section.

I make art too.
