I am a current MS student in Dr. Craig Layman’s lab at North Carolina State University. I am broadly interested in freshwater ecology and fisheries biology, however I also have a particular interest in understanding how organisms are affected by urbanization.

Currently, my thesis research aims to understand the effects of urban expansion on stream fish communities within North Carolina. Through this research I aim to further scientific understanding on how development affects the interactions and assemblages of aquatic organisms and to inform stream restoration efforts.
