Welcome! I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in the Kurt E. Anderson lab at UC Riverside in the Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology Program (EEOB) studying aquatic community ecology. I use a variety of tools from Data Science and Visualization, Multivariate and Time Series Analysis, GIS, Laboratory Experiments, and Field Work to understand how the underlying spatial structure of habitats influence community dynamics and diversity. I'm passionate about Ecology and communicating complex data to a diversity of audiences.

I carry out my field research through the UC Natural Reserve Systems at the Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Laboratory and am a previous fellow of the Institute for the Study of Ecological & Evolutionary Climate Impacts (ISEECI). I also use spatial microcosm experiments in the laboratory to test similar ideas using microbial aquatic protists. I received my undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at Florida State University working with Thomas E. Miller.
