About me

I am a conservation scientist focused on the relationship between natural ecosystems and human societies. My research addresses how to conserve biodiversity while ensuring sustainable and equitable development. I also work on improving conservation planning methods through enhancing optimization models related to conservation actions like protected area acquisition to maximize conservation outcomes at reduced costs.
Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department under the Armsworth lab. I expect to graduate in Spring 2024.
