ABOUT

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 completed my dissertation and am focusing on publishing and job-searching. I currently make my home in Nashville with my husband and cat 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.
Feel free to follow me on social media or reach out and say hello; I love connecting with other scientists!
