Research interests: climate change, parasitology, atmospheric science, herpetology, disease ecology

Ahoy! I am a senior pursuing a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology with a minor in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. My interests are broad but lie in the realm of investigating the tangible impacts of anthropogenic climate change on species and ecosystems. I have become deeply interested in parasitology and disease ecology through my work with the Johnson Lab and have been given a unique opportunity to observe the effects of drought on the pond ecosystems of Northern California, which is incredibly exciting and I hope to continue to work in the field in a similar capacity in the future. When I'm not chest deep in a pond, you can find me cooking, climbing, or reading, but you'll rarely find me without dirt and a smile on my face from my latest adventures!
