I am a graduate student in Hillary Young’s community ecology lab. I have always been fascinated by the connections between and within landscapes and pursued these interests during my time as an undergraduate student at UCLA. I was so fortunate to have participated in field courses and research experiences that brought me to amazing places, taught me so much about the world, helped me build community, and affirmed my passion for ecology. I believe these field experiences were an integral part of my career as a researcher and I will always be excited to be a part of young researchers' paths in science.
I study the impacts of human disturbances like climatic changes and species introduction on plant and pollinator communities and their interactions.
