I am a graduate student in Cornell’s Department of Natural Resources & the Environment studying the parasitic threats to moose in New York’s Adirondack Park. Under the guidance of Dr. Krysten Schuler in the Cornell Wildlife Health Lab, Dr. Angela Fuller in the Department of Natural Resources, and Dr. Jacqueline Frair at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, I am working to quantify juvenile moose survival, the impact of parasites on moose health, and community dynamics of these parasites and their multiple hosts. I am broadly interested in both community and population ecology and the role that parasites play in influencing vertebrate populations.
I completed my M.S. in Wildlife Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying the population dynamics and genetics of the endangered American marten, and completed undergraduate studies at the University of Vermont.
