I am currently a Junior at the University of Missouri majoring in Biological Sciences and minoring in psychology. I plan on pursuing a career in Forensic Sciences and continuing my education after I graduate. 

This year I will be working in the Eggert lab doing research for my capstone and honors in biology on landscape genetics. We will be determining if geographical barriers such as I-70 effect raccoon dispersal patterns based on sex and genetic variability along with the transmission of parasites and pathogens.
