I am an ecologist, conservation scientist, and environmental educator. In my research, I seek to understand the mechanisms by which ecological communities respond to global environmental change and identify actionable strategies for conserving biodiversity and ecosystem function in human-dominated landscapes. I am currently a Lecturer and H&S Dean's Postdoctoral Fellow in Rodolfo Dirzo's Lab in the Department of Biology at Stanford University. I recently completed my Ph.D. in the same lab, where I focused on biodiversity conservation within timber production landscapes. Previsouly, I earned B.S. in Fisheries and Wildlife Science from Oregon State University, where I completed a thesis with Dr. J. Boone Kauffman examining the effects of colonial waterbirds on nutrient cycling in Honduran mangroves. Since 2015, I have spent substantial time living and working in southern Chile, where I maintain a close collaboration with theBird Ecology Lab at the Universidad Austral de Chile.
