I am interested in relationships between food and water security, environmental policy, and ecology. Currently, I am a PhD student in the School of Natural Resources and Environment at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. In August 2016, I completed my MS in Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Massachusetts, and I completed my BSc. in Wildlife Biology at McGill University in 2010 (Montreal, Canada). Prior to graduate school, I worked as a high school programs coordinator at Science Club for Girls (Cambridge, MA), a research assistant at the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA, Arlington, MA), and a development and communications assistant at Alternatives for Community and Environment (ACE), an Envrionmental Justice organization in Boston, MA.
