I am a PhD candidate in the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia, advised by Drs. Richard Hall and Sonia Altizer. I am broadly interested in wildlife and animal ecology, particularly in the effects of landscape changes on animal behavior. I enjoy working with models and large (spatial) datasets.
Before coming to UGA in the fall of 2016, I was a research student at the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre and Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, where I worked with Dr. Thomas Mueller, studying the social and physical drivers of long-distance animal movements.

I received my B.A. in Biology from Pomona College in 2014.
