I'm from North Carolina, but also grew up in Singapore, China, Germany, South Korea, Florida, and Georgia. After graduating from undergrad in Vermont, I lived in Colorado, Arizona, and Idaho. I now split my time between Berkeley and Cody, Wyoming where I conduct winter and summer field seasons. 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. Before starting grad school I was working as an independent contractor in south central Idaho where I worked with several conservation nonprofits including the Idaho Conservation League, The Nature Conservancy, and the Central Idaho Rangelands Network. I also was the Project Coordinator for a wolf-livestock coexistence collaborative, the Wood River Wolf Project. My experience there sparked my interest in learning about the drivers of carnivore-livestock conflict. I joined Arthur Middleton's lab in the fall of 2017 and study how elk migrations affect wolf-livestock conflict in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
