I am a PhD candidate at Florida International University in the lab of Alessandro Catenazzi. My work at FIU focuses on amphibian populations in the Neotropics (check out the research tab!). I began my PhD at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale before moving (with our lab) to FIU in January 2018. In 2014 I graduated from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies where I worked with Dr. David Skelly on my Masters of Environmental Science. While at FES I worked for the Peabody Museum of Natural History as an assistant in Vertebrate Zoology. Prior to FES I received my BS in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Connecticut where I worked with Dr. Mark Urban.
In addition to all that academic stuff i've spent my free time as a camp director at Camp Hope in Litchfield, CT, an EMT instructor for Hartford Hospital, a field hockey coach, a substitute teacher and a whole bunch of other awesome experiences.
