Graduate Assistant

Room:FB 207


Education:

University of Wisconsin-Green Bay(UWGB)-B.S. Biology, Animal Biology concentration 2023

Ball State University- M.S. Biology 2025


Research Interests:

I am a member of Dr. Pyron’s research lab where we are studying fish and macroinvertebrate assemblages of the upper Wabash River. My research interests include urban ecology and invasive species management.

 

General Interests:

In my free time, I enjoy exploring new places, hiking, fishing, and reading. I used to be a competitive swimmer for 17 years so there’s a good chance you’ll catch me at the local pool as well.

 

What’s Next:

After receiving my MS in Biology, I plan on working for either the US Fish and Wildlife Service or Department of Natural Resources conducting research using the skills that I acquired at Ball State. After that, I might go on to work towards my Ph.D., as I am also considering a career as a Professor.
