I started on the road to science as an undergraduate student, and I love engaging undergraduate students in my research.
I currently do not have any ongoing projects for which I may need help from undergraduate students. Feel free to email me a cover letter and resume if you are interested in future opportunities!
Conservation and Management
I spent a few years before graduate school working at an environmental non-profit, and still work with non-profits and government agencies to apply new science in conservation and management. I'm currently helping Island Conservation and researchers at Northern Illinois University use next generation DNA sequencing to determine the diets of invasive house mice on Midway Atoll. They will use this information to inform eradication efforts and measure management outcomes in Midway's plant and animal communities.
SEEDS (Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity, and Sustainability) is an group founded through the Ecological Society of America (ESA). The UCSB SEEDS chapter aims to get undergraduates involved in ecology through research, outreach, and interactions with faculty and graduate students.
Data Sharing and Reproducible Science
For science transparency and for more impactful conservation, I aim to share data, analyses, and methods for all my work. You can find code, data, and methods on my GitHub!
Statistics and Programming for Ecologists
I continue to lead workshops on using computer programming and statistics in ecology! I've led several workshops on generalized linear models in R and on programming in R for ecologists.
