I am a wildlife biologist, a tropical ecologist, and a conservationist. I hold a B.S. in Biological Sciences (Ohio University, 2011) and a Ph.D. in Ecology (Auburn University, 2017). I am now a post-doctoral researcher in the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University, where I am modeling population demography of endangered reptiles and providing decision-support science with Conor McGowan in the Alabama Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit.

On this site, you can learn about my research and teaching background, where I conduct field research projects, and the resulting publications. I also have a page where I list important research collaborators. Last, I hope to highlight various other musings, philosophies, and life experiences with periodic blog posts.
