I received my B.A. in Biology and Spanish from Dickinson College, where I studied American toads (Anaxyrus americanus) and their impacts on pest insect populations in an agricultural setting. After graduating, I spent four years working as a field research scientist with various conservation detection dog groups. Most of this work focused on non-invasive detection of rare, elusive, and endangered species; highlights include wolf and large carnivore surveys in northeast Washington, fisher surveys in the Sierra Nevadas, and moose surveys in the Adirondacks. I joined UNH as a M.S. student and Teaching Assistant in the fall of 2021. My research centers on carnivore-mesocarnivore interactions throughout New Hampshire.
