I am a Doctoral candidate at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, in the Ecology and Evolution graduate program. I am co-advised, and thus a member of both the Lockwood lab and Fonseca Lab. My interests are focused around the areas of conservation biology, invasion ecology and species surveillance and monitoring of non-native, rare or cryptic species. The surveillance aspect of my work is multi-faceted, and utilizes molecular techniques, computational methods, and robotics.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Rutgers University in 2012 with a B.S. in Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources.
