I received my bachelor’s degree in biology with a concentration in ecology and conservation and a minor in earth science from Boston University in May 2013. While at Boston University I had the pleasure to work at Wally Fulweiler’s marine biochemistry lab working to process samples and conducting my own research with silica concentrations in sediment and woody biomass. In September 2013 I began work for the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries at the Fisheries Research Laboratory in Grand Isle, LA working as Chief Scientist for the Louisiana portion of the SEAMAP Plankton Survey and as a field biologist for a variety of offshore and nearshore sampling projects in the Gulf of Mexico. Here at Iowa State I am a M.S student using GIS techniques to prioritize habitat restoration sites for the federally endangered Topeka Shiner and Plains Topminnow in the Boone, Rock, and North Raccoon watersheds.
