"The good life of any river may depend on the perception of its music; and the preservation of some music to perceive"
- ALDO LEOPOLD
I am currently a PhD student in the Rosemond Lab at the Odum School of Ecology within the University of Georgia.. I am interested in many aspects of freshwater ecology, but particularly in the roles that animals, from macroinvertebrates to fishes, play in mediating ecosystem processes.
In addition to research, I enjoy teaching, participating in community outreach activities, and writing about science.
