Welcome! I’m a second year M.S student at the University of Washington’s Quantitative Ecology and Resource Management program. I work with Dr. Sarah Converse in the Quantitative Conservation lab. Broadly, I am interested in developing modeling solutions for both data-rich and data-limited wildlife populations. I am also interested in management through disturbance, particularly for early successional species.
I got my B.S in statistics, also at the UW, in 2018. My interests in ecological modeling and conservation were piqued by internships at NOAA’s Northwest Fisheries Science Center and UW’s Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST), a citizen science program. At NOAA, I developed an agent-based model of juvenile Chinook salmon in the Skagit River estuary. At COASST, I primarily worked on the development and analysis of their marine debris monitoring program. Some preliminary results can be found here.
When I’m not at work you can probably find me doing one of the following things poorly but enthusiastically: hiking, playing soccer, birding, playing board games, dancing at concerts.
