Research interests: global public health, disease ecology, parasitology, epidemiology

Hello! I recently graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, a minor in Spanish, and a certificate in Public Health. My main research interests are global public health, disease ecology, parasitology, epidemiology, and how climate change affects disease outbreaks. During my undergraduate studies I first worked as a research assistant studying how different traits affect invasivity in plant species. Then, during my senior year at CU Boulder, I was fortunate enough to work in the Johnson lab as a UROP recipient on the necropsy team. This experience allowed me to grow my fascination with disease ecology and am now working at the Johnson lab as a parasitology research technician. Through this position I am excited to investigate the effect the parasite R. ondatrae has on Californian amphibian species. When I'm not in the lab, you can find me painting, watering my numerous plants scattered around my apartment, or thrift shopping.
