Welcome! I am a PhD student in Anna Jolles' Lab and James Watson's Lab at Oregon State University. I use tools in disease ecology, conservation biogeography, and network analysis, to study emergent properties of wildlife networks.
My research interests encompass a wide range of topics in conservation, animal movement, wetland ecology, herpetology, and anthropogenic impacts on natural systems. As a field biologist by training, my work has taken me to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Costa Rica, and several states in the USA.
One of my goals is to learn how to promote scientific contributions from traditionally under-represented groups in STEM. I work towards this goal through campus activism, learning how to be an ally for people with minoritized identities, and exploring how to hold units accountable for symbolic commitments to diversity and inclusion.
When I'm not doing science you can find me biking, hiking, climbing, writing, exploring my culinary side, drawing, practicing calligraphy, or playing instruments!
