Research Interests:

I am currently a senior at the University of Missouri majoring in Fisheries and Wildlife and minoring in Biological Sciences.  After graduation in May of 2018, I plan to attend graduate school to conduct conservation genetics research.  

 For two years, I worked as a technician on the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Statewide Crayfish Conservation Program.  This past summer, I conducted prairie sampling as part of an MDC patch-burn-grazing study.  Currently, I have joined the lab to work with Kris Budd‘s Asian Elephant project. We are evaluating population structure of an extinct elephant population in Myanmar to inform future reintroduction efforts.
