Welcome to my site!
I am a Conservation Biologist and Presidential Research Fellow at Auburn University conducting collaborative research in the Tsavo Ecosystem of Kenya. I study African elephant behavior, movement and community-based coexistence and management among my MANY other varied research interests. You can read more about my ongoing projects under the research tab.
I have wrapped up my fieldwork in Kenya and am currently finishing my dissertation and job-searching. I currently make my home in Nashville with my husband and two cats and we are looking forward to relocating in the future. In my (rare) spare time I also enjoy photography, mountain biking, and anything else outdoors. You can see some of my photography in the corresponding tab.
I am a proud advocate for women and diversity in STEM and non-traditional students.
Feel free to follow me on social media or reach out and say hello; I love connecting with other scientists! I will be completing my dissertation in 2022 and am currently searching for permanent or post-doc opportunities.
Here's a small sample of some of the research projects I have been involved in. Visit the research page for full descriptions.
