I am a Ph.D Candidate in the Graduate Group of Ecology and in Andrew Rypel’s lab at UC Davis. I have worked in mountain freshwater systems in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and California’s Sierra Nevada, and I have had the opportunity to work on a range of organisms such as aquatic invertebrates, salamanders, and fish.
I completed my B.S. in Biology at Saint Mary’s College in 2015 and received my Master’s in Ecology and Sustainability at California State University Stanislaus in 2018. You can read more about my research on this website or follow along with the #SierraFishes project on Twitter to see adventures of doing backcountry research.
