About

I am a 5th year PhD candidate in the Biology Department, based at Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Station. My research centers on the study of animal migration from a variety of perspectives, including: 1) how animals make decisions on when and where to migrate; 2) the strategies that animals use (and sometimes share) to acquire information about their environment and one-another to inform these decisions; and 3) equitable habitat management for protection of both migratory animals and human well-being. I enjoy both teaching and research mentorship, and have been privileged to teach courses in ecological research methods, sensory ecology, and marine conservation. I am eager to learn from professors and students alike through the PFP program in order to develop my teaching skills and approach.
