Biography

I am a Master’s student in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at the University of Washington. Before joining the Quantitative Conservation Lab, I completed my B.S. in Environmental Science and Resource Management with a focus on Wildlife Conservation as well as a minor in Quantitative Science, also at UW. I’ve spent many moons diving on sage grouse, staring at gelada monkeys, and howling at wolves. More recently, I’ve been involved with projects studying endangered fishers and montane foxes in the Cascades and Sierra Nevada. I am excited about using emerging technologies to do effective wildlife research in a less invasive manner. I love using R and GIS to display spatial data in fun and informative ways! My research interests include carnivore population dynamics, conflicts at the human-wildlife interface, and intraguild interactions in changing montane landscapes. I am currently working to develop estimates of density and survival of Cascade Red Fox in Mt. Rainier National Park and the surrounding area.
