about me

Hi! I am a research scientist interested in natural resource management, using science to reduce human-wildlife conflict, fostering harmonious living between humans and the ecosystems we rely on, and communicating science to a broad range of audiences. I recently completed my PhD at UC Santa Barbara where I primarily focused on human impact to wildlife behavior.

Outside of work I enjoy camping, dabbling in photography, and like to spend a lot of time training and adventuring with my canine sidekick, Salsa.
