About me

HAL_ST_1a

I’m a Ph.D. student studying ecology at Cornell University. My research focuses on the use of quantitative methods to assess the population dynamics of  fisheries and their response to anthropogenic disturbances. In my free time, I’m a hiker, a skier, a homebrewer, and a dabbler in electronic design.

Prior to starting at Cornell, I worked as a technician for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and as counselor for a therapeutic wilderness program in the mountains of Utah and Colorado. I did my undergraduate work at Allegheny College and graduated in 2010 with a B.S. in Environmental Science.

I study in Cornell’s Department of Natural Resources where I am jointly advised by Dr. Patrick Sullivan and Dr. Clifford Kraft. Much of my work is done as part of the Adirondack Fishery Research Program.
