I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Ecology at UC Davis conducting research in fish and wildlife conservation using genetic methods. I use eDNA to study ecosystems and ecological interactions, including the use of multi-taxa biodiversity assessments for conservation and management of estuarine and coastal species. I am also interested in methods for sharing and managing large genetic datasets. I have an MS in Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology from San Francisco State University and a BA in Ecology and Evolution from Cornell University. I am originally from San Francisco and competed nationally and internationally in rowing. I will complete my PhD in December, 2022.
One of the best things about doing science is sharing it with others. I enjoy mentoring undergraduate researchers and have supervised paid undergraduate experiential learning at UC Davis since 2019. In 2021, I received a UC Davis Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Mentoring Undergraduate Research.
