Biography

After growing up in Guatemala City, Guatemala and northeastern Tennessee, I received my B.S. in Biology from Bryan College in Tennessee and completed an M.S. in Wildlife Science at Oregon State University investigating the nutritional carrying capacity of moose on the Copper River Delta of southcentral Alaska. I am now studying the responses of elk to forest restoration in the Jemez Mountains of northcentral New Mexico as part of my Ph.D. through Texas Tech University.
