I am broadly interested in terrestrial conservation biology, political ecology, and the effects of anthropogenic land use on biodiversity. I've conducted research in Peru, Brazil, Costa Rica, and California. My undergraduate thesis is titled “Lizards as a Lens for Understanding the Effects of Land Use Change”. My master’s thesis explores “Contrasting Herpetofauna Diversity in Monoculture and Polyculture Oil Palm Farms in Costa Rica”. I’m eager to continue researching and sharing how biological diversity is a useful, dynamic lens through which we can quantify and understand changes in ecosystem function and socioecological well-being. I enjoy teaching and was a TA for undergraduate courses, ‘Introduction to Earth Systems’ and ‘Biology and Global Change’.
