I believe that scientists have a responsibility to conduct applied research and use science to solve ecological problems, inform management, and engage and empower communities. My long-term goal is to pursue a career in environmental management and science communication, with focuses in citizen science, community engagement, and environmental literacy. I am interested in exploring the interface of cultural anthropology and ecology, as well as engaging in applied transdisciplinary research in order to solve complex problems related to environmental management and ecological restoration.
