Research interests: parasitology, paleobiology, human evolution

Hi! I am a third year undergraduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder, majoring in Ecological and Evolutionary Biology. I also am pursuing a minor in geology and another in anthropology, and am an upcoming member on the CU Gold Board for leadership. I am very interested in evolution and hope to do research in paleobiology and/or human evolution later in my career. After graduating from undergrad, I plan on attending graduate school to get my doctorate degree with a focus in paleobiology. Through the Johnson lab I have been able to learn more about parasitism and its  ecological impacts and niches, as well as gain great lab experience and trainings for working in a lab with animals, which I hope to utilize to further my career. While not in the lab I enjoy reading short stories,  watching films, and spending time with my friends as well as my Betta fish!”
