About me

HAL_ST_1aI’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 freshwater and marine fisheries. 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.
