Welcome! I'm a current PhD student at Arkansas State University. My research intersects network modeling, soil microbiome dynamics, and reptile disease in tall grass prairies. I attended Frostburg State University for a Master's Degree in Applied Ecology and Conservation Biology and Davidson College for a Bachelor's Degree in both Biology and Music. I've mostly worked with reptiles, from monitoring bog turtles to surveying for desert tortoises as a research technician in Las Vegas, Nevada.
