I am a Master’s student in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at the University of Washington. I completed my B.S. in Environmental Science and Management at UC Davis, where I conducted research primarily on functional plant ecology and wildlife ecology. I will be working with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife on Western pond turtle conservation, which is a Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) within the state of Washington. My research interests include species interactions, terrestrial wildlife management, climate change ecology, and human-wildlife interactions that overall help us understand the anthropogenic impacts on wildlife.
