Biography

Originally from Chicago, I received my B.S. in Natural Resources from The University of Vermont. Since graduating, I have worked as a technician on multiple research projects primarily interested in carnivore ecology, predator-prey interactions and conservation. I am currently a M.S. student working in the Gila National Forest looking at the costs of reproduction for elk in relation to predator density. Outside of wildlife work, I enjoy rock climbing, mountaineering, hunting and traveling.
