I am a PhD student at the University of Virginia working with Max Castorani studying the community ecology of coastal marine ecosystems. I am also a Virginia Sea Grant Fellow working with the Nature Conservancy’s Virginia Coast Reserve on oyster reef restoration. I aspire to build on ecological theory to answer compelling questions at the interface of ecology, conservation, and management.

I completed my BS in Biology (2015) and MS in Biology (2018) working with David Bass at the University of Central Oklahoma.
