I graduated with a BS in Biology from the University of Florida in 2018, and in 2021 I received an MSc with Distinction in Conservation, Ecology, and Evolution from Imperial College London. For my Master’s thesis, I used phylogenetic comparative methods to investigate the drivers of extinction risk in lemurs. I also have experience working on research pertaining to plant-insect co-evolution and primate behavior and ecology. I am particularly interested in how global change impacts the distribution, diversity, and evolution of species.
