  • BS California State University, Long Beach 2014


Originally from California, I earned a BS in Biology from California State University, Long Beach in 2014. As an undergraduate, I volunteered for the CSULB Shark Lab as well as the Downeast Salmon Federation. After graduating, I worked as a fisheries technician in Alaska, Idaho, and Oklahoma. In fulfillment of my MS in Natural Resources (emphasis in Fisheries), I will complete a project on the spawning movements and habitat selection of muskellunge in Green Bay, Lake Michigan.

Research Interests

I am primarily interested in fish movement behavior, biotelemetry, invasive species ecology, and population dynamics.
