Conservation problems are complex, involving a variety of environmental and social variables, and I strive to better understand the nexus between these areas. I have been and continue to be involved in numerous side projects beyond my personal research. Topics include, but are not limited to, finding novel ways of communicating science to the public and policy makers, identifying and eliminating social inequalities in ecology, sustainable life choices, and improving methods in ecological research. I look forward to these extracurricular learning opportunities that will present themselves throughout my career.
