I am currently a PhD candidate in the Brodie Lab at the University of Virginia. I obtained my Bachelor of Science from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and my Master’s from the University of Illinois.

The goal of my research, both current and future, is to understand how the environment can impact animal behaviors and vice versa.

I am a strong advocate for mental health and spend my free time time pursuing other hobbies! When I’m not doing science I love to run, drink beer, and play video games.
