I study how elk migrations affect spatiotemporal aspects of wolf-livestock conflict in the eastern frontier of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem near Cody, Wyoming where I conduct winter and summer field seasons. I joined Arthur Middleton's lab in the fall of 2017. I grew up all over the world, but am from western North Carolina and most recently coming from Ketchum, Idaho. I got my B.A. in Conservation Biology at Middlebury College in Vermont. I have a wide range of field experience, from surveying caves to look for hibernating bats in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park to camera trapping on the Arizona-Mexico border for the National Park Service and Student Conservation Association. I most recently worked as an independent contractor in Idaho where I worked with several conservation nonprofits including the Idaho Conservation League, The Nature Conservancy, and the Central Idaho Rangelands Network. I was also the Project Coordinator for a predator-livestock coexistence collaborative, the Wood River Wolf Project. My research interests include predator-prey interactions, human-wildlife conflict, and animal movement.
