I am a Ph.D. Candidate at The Ohio State University and my research focuses on landscape ecology, physiology, and climate change effects, using Plethodontid salamanders as a model organism. I have a broad interest in many ecological questions and organisms and seek to conduct sound and interesting science. I am currently working under the advisement of Dr. Bill Peterman at OSU. For more information on my research interests and projects, check out my Research page!
