I am a doctoral student in the Sorte Lab in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine. My research interests primarily focus on (1) global change ecology and (2) predator-prey relationships, and I study keystone predators and foundation species to better understand how climate change may affect these important drivers of biodiversity.

While scientific research is essential for expanding our understanding of the natural world, I believe that education and outreach are vital components of effecting greater change. In addition to research, I also participate in a number of diverse outreach programs.
