I graduated with my MS in June of 2013 from Wright State University in Dayton, OH. My previous research focused on the impacts of white-tailed deer herbivory on forest understory plant communities in Northern Wisconsin. I'm now in the co-op unit working on The-Deer Forest Study with Duane Diefenbach in pursuit of my PhD in Wildlife. I'm excited about the DFS and its potential to answer much needed questions about the influences of other factors (in combination with deer browsing) on forest vegetation.

Research Interests

white-tailed deer, vegetation dynamics, plant-herbivore interactions, habitat filtering
