Growing up in Connecticut, I showed very little interest in nature or the environment. But when I was 16, and in need of an escape, I took an impromptu trip to Banff National Park in Canada and found a passion for the environment through the lens of my camera. After receiving my Bachelor's and Master's  degrees at Columbia University, I moved to northern California to work at the Suisun Resource Conservation District as a wildlife biologist. Currently, I'm pursuing my doctoral degree at the University of Michigan's School for Environment and Sustainability.


I am a spatial ecologist whose work focuses on the intersection between animal movements and anthropogenic activity. I employ remote sensing, statistical modeling, and field-based methods to better understand the mechanisms driving these human-wildlife interactions. My dissertation research at U-Mich will broadly focus on the effects of prescribed fire on the movements of wildlife – particularly gray wolves – in the Upper Peninsula in collaboration with the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. I aim to use an interdisciplinary approach to examine complex conservation issues, combining social and ecological sciences to promote coexistence between people and animals. In the future, I hope to inspire others to cherish the planet through the use of visual arts - as photography did for me - while also utilizing scientific research to create meaningful change. 

When I'm not taking photos, or hiking in a National Park, you can almost certainly find me playing golf, watching a fantasy TV show, or finding the best hole-in-the-wall restaurant in every town.
