I am a wildlife biologist, a tropical ecologist, and a museum scientist. I hold a B.S. in Biological Sciences (Ohio University, 2011) and a Ph.D. in Ecology (Auburn University, 2017). I am now a resident faculty member of the Organization for Tropical Studies and Duke University, where am teaching tropical biology in Costa Rica.

On this site, you can learn about my research interests, where I conduct field research projects, and the resulting publications. I also have pages where I list my collaborators and describe my teaching philosophy. Last, I hope to highlight various other musings and philosophies from life in a blog page.
