I am a Ph. D. candidate finishing a degree in evolutionary biology through the joint doctoral program at San Diego State University and the University of California at Riverside, set to graduate in 2024. I am broadly trained in both ecology and evolutionary biology, with an extensive background in animal behavior, population dynamics, field biology, and natural history. I have a strong background in both herpetology and mammalogy, and am deeply committed to research, teaching, and mentorship, with a focus on fostering a dynamic and inclusive learning environment.
