About Me

Welcome! I’m pleased to make your acquaintance.

I suppose you’re here to learn a little bit more about me. In my undergraduate work, I studied the fine scale site fidelity of northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris) and the home ranges of pumas (Puma concolor). These projects resulted in multiple poster presentations and an honors thesis (Home Range Trends of Adult Male Pumas in the Santa Cruz Mountains). My undergraduate faculty advisor was Dan Costa and my thesis advisor was Chris Wilmers.

For my Masters, I’ll be advised by Bart Grudzinski with my thesis TBD. Generally speaking, I’ll be looking at the habitat selection and characteristics of the North American Beaver (Castor canadensis).

While you’re here, I invite you to read the articles I’ve written. My early articles focused on some undergraduate field work, but more recently, I’ve focused on technical posts that I hope help to clear up methods that I’ve used in my research.
