Education & Background:
B.A. in Conservation Biology and B.A. in Environmental Studies
Environmental Studies Certificate

Research Interests:
I am interested in learning about how global climate change affects the habitat, abundance, distribution, and evolution of species. I believe that it is beneficial to research all different kinds of species to truly understand the impact of climate change. Research is key to achieving the necessary protection of species under the law, such as the Endangered Species Act.

Personal Interests:
I enjoy all aspects of being active and being outdoors, my favorite activity being hiking at places like Devil’s Lake State Park. In my free time I enjoy cooking and baking, practicing yoga, and playing softball for the UW Madison Fast-pitch Club Softball team. My passion is for the environment, so my dream is to be able to travel and see Earth’s natural beauty and find a career centered on advocating for environmental law and policy.
