I received my PhD in Ecology and Evolution from the Lockwood Lab at Rutgers University in May 2019.
I specialize in using meta-analysis and systematic review to make sense of an immense amount of ecological data.
I am the chair of the Ecological Society of America's Student Section.
I make art and host a podcast called Science in Progress.
I just returned from my second summer teaching with Clubes de Ciencia. This Mexico-based NGO emphasizes STEM education for students in high school and college. For more info click here. My trip was supported by the US consulate, and I gave a talk at the consulate’s Esquina Franklin, Guadalajara.
UC Davis’ Coastal and Marine Sciences department recently published thoughts on how graduate school is similar long-distance running here.
Check out my co-authored publication on the benefits of Sci-Art practices. Open-access in the ESA Bulletin.
My podcast Science in Progress is available anywhere you find podcasts! In each episode, I interview students and research techs about their experiences beginning careers in science.
