Hi! I am a graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis. I am broadly interested in avian ecology and evolution, statistical modelling and data-driven natural history.
I was captured by biology and natural history during my undergraduate studies at Hampshire College while doing bird-related field jobs and studying bat-plant interactions with Dr. Susan Whitehead , Dr. Dina Dechmann and Dr. Romeo Saldaña-Vázquez.
For my Master's in Biostatistics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst I worked on songbird migratory flights using Motus data together with Dr. Jenny Smetzer and Dr. Nick Reich. Prior to joining Washington University, I spent time at the Universidad Icesi working with Dr. Gustavo Londoño's lab on bird nesting ecology with a Fulbright Research grant.
In Fall 2019 I began my PhD in the Evolution, Ecology and Population Biology Program at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri with Dr. Carlos Botero.
