My interest lies at the intersection of disease ecology, community biology, and wildlife conservation. Specifically, I am curious about the impacts of the amphibian microbiome on immune function and disease susceptibility. I received my B.S. in Conservation and Resource Studies with a focus in Wildlife Biology and Conservation, and a B.A. in Geography from the University of California, Berkeley. In my PhD, I look forward to examining the role of host vs. environmental traits in disease dynamics and contributing to amphibian and biodiversity conservation methods.
