I'm a new MS student working with Lisa Angeloni and George Wittemyer. After receiving my Bachelor's from Colby College in Maine, I moved to California to work for the National Park Service at Point Reyes National Seashore as a bio tech, primarily studying sound levels in the park. When an opportunity arose to work for the Natural Sounds and Night Skies Division of the NPS, I jumped on it and landed here in Fort Collins. After a few years of traveling to all corners of the US, studying sound in parks, I'm looking forward to joining the GDPE. Specifically, I'm interested in the effects of anthropogenic noise on protected areas and the wildlife they harbor.
