Bio

I am currently a PhD student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln studying Natural Resource Sciences with and emphasis in Applied Ecology. My dissertation research  focuses on the spatial ecology and population dynamics of elk in highly fragmented landscapes in western Nebraska. Following the completion of my degree, I hope to pursue a career in academia or research. My research interests include mammalogy, population ecology, and quantitative ecology. When I'm not collaring animals or trying to write code, I enjoy running, backpacking, hunting, and skiing.
