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 in applied contexts 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.
