Restoration ecology and range management in drylands

Greetings! I am a PhD student at the University of Arizona, located in the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Currently, I am a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and PhD student in the Gornish Lab in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment. My research focuses on restoration of degraded lands and invasive plant species management. I aim to provide practitioners with research insights to make data-informed management decisions. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from the University of Arizona in 2019, and worked as a Research Specialist for the UArizona Center for Environmentally Sustainable Mining prior to beginning graduate school.
