“The land is the real teacher. All we need as students is mindfulness.”- Robin Wall Kimmerer
I am a parasite ecologist studying the impact of human influence on parasite and host communities. My research interest are born out of a love of all things aquatic and marine & a deep curiosity about the intersections of ecology, zoology, molecular biology, and parasitology. I link ecological theory, experimental approaches, and observational studies together to draw robust and meaningful conclusions.
