Welcome! I am a PhD student in Anna Jolles' Lab and James Watson's Lab at Oregon State University. I study complex systems at the human-wildlife interface. Drawing from tools in disease ecology, conservation biogeography, and network analysis, I am exploring drivers of the wildlife trade network evolution and topology, ecological drivers of snakebite envenoming, contact heterogeneity in amphibians, and cross-scale interactions that underlie human-wildlife conflict.
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, and several states in the USA. I am committed to promoting scientific contributions from traditionally under-represented groups, and I mentor undergraduate students through my research and work.
