2013: B.S. Fisheries and Wildlife Ecology, Northland College
I have a wide range of interests, including how populations change over time in response to biotic and abiotic factors, animal adaptations and behavior, and habitat use. I believe that understanding as much as possible about organisms and the ecosystems they inhabit is the best way to begin to conserve biodiversity. For my Masters work, I will be examining population changes over time and determining the current population status of the Marbled Murrelet, a threatened seabird.
In my free time, I like to spend as much time outside as possible hiking, fishing, birding, ice skating, and playing with my dog, Milo. When I'm inside, I enjoy curling up with a good book, baking, and playing the guitar and ukulele.
