I am a Master's student working in the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory with Dr. Sunil Kumar and Dr. Melinda Laituri. Before coming to GDPE, I worked as an environmental contractor for five years conducting environmental compliance for federal agencies. I have a B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Oregon. In addition to my research, I have worked for a variety of classes as a teaching assistant and have a keen interest in teaching science to undergraduates.
