I am a biologist with over six years of experience developing decision support
tools and predictive models for large-scale collaborative conservation efforts. I earned a BSc. from Cornell University and have dual MSc. degrees from Wageningen
University and The University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna,
Austria. I am employed by the Chicago Botanic Garden and am a PhD candidate
in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department of University of
Illinois-Chicago. My research focuses on how the actions of humans, intentional and unintentional, affect wildlife and wildlife habitat.
