I am a PhD candidate in the Graduate Program in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University.

I conduct meta-research that analyzes research biases in how ecologists study invasive species.

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

I make art alongside my scientific research.
