BSc Mathematics, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, 2019
I am interested in cetacean ecology, behavior and conservation. While I have a background in passive acoustic detection and mathematical modeling of diseases, I am now switching gears to study satellite tagging and stable isotope analysis of humpback whale skin samples in the North Pacific as a member of the Whale Habitat, Ecology, and Telemetry (WHET) Lab. I have particular interests in whale social behavior in relation to ecological niche, the use of satellite tagging technology, and stable isotope analysis.
