About Me

me9I love being outside, the ocean, photography and maps.

I am a first year graduate student in the Tinker-Estes Lab in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Check out the exciting research our lab is doing here!

I graduated from Bowdoin College in 2010 with a major in Biology and a French minor. Since graduating from college, I’ve worked on a variety of field projects (more info can be found on my past research page). I recently earned a Geographic Information Science (GIS) certificate from Oregon State University.

For my master’s thesis I will be analyzing sea otter movement and habitat use data from Elkhorn Slough. Learn more about Elkhorn Slough here!
