Having been with Virginia Tech's Conservation Management Institute for 8 years, I worked in applied research on a variety of topics including wildlife, plant ecology, and forestry. I am currently pursuing a master's degree in the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife Conservation researching post-White-nose syndrome bat species occupancy at several Virginia National Parks.

Research Interests

My interests are primarily focused on mammalian ecology and behavior and threatened and endangered species conservation.
