My work spans ecological disciplines. I hold a bachelor's degree in Integrative Biology: Ecology and Evolution from the University of California, Berkeley and a master's in Social Science: Environment and Community from California Polytechnic Humboldt. I'm currently studying software engineering and machine learning with Codecademy. You can learn more at my website, meriel.systems.
The sketches in the project videos are from my undergraduate lab doodles; I took the photos in the field with a wee iPhone 4. I produced and narrated the films.
