Ph.D. Candidate Stanford University | Department of Biology Advisor: Rodolfo Dirzo Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Mailing address: Bass Biology Building, Rm 203, 327 Campus Dr, Stanford, CA 94305
I am an ecologist, conservation scientist, and environmental educator. Currently I am a Ph.D. student in ecology at Stanford University. Through my Ph.D. 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 hold a 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. Prior to joining the Dirzo Lab, I spent a year in southern Chile, leading mistnetting crews for the Bird Ecology Lab at the Universidad Austral de Chile.
