Job title:

Environmental Science, Policy, and Management

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Environmental Science, Policy & Management at Berkeley. As a community ecologist, I use movement data and satellite imagery to disentangle how human land-uses affect wildlife behavior and population dynamics. Before joining the Brashares lab, I managed the Data Analytics & IT Department at Earthwatch Institute, where I led initiatives to engage corporate stakeholders and volunteers in ecology field research. I graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Ecology.
