Quantitative Invasion Ecology

in the Lockwood Lab at Rutgers University

Visiting Graduate researcher at Bodega Marine Lab

I am a PhD candidate in the Graduate Program in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University. I conduct meta-research that analyzes biases in how ecologists study invasive species impacts.

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

I enjoy making art alongside my scientific research.
