Personal Statement
I graduated from the University of Illinois with a B.S. in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences with a minor in Environmental Economics and Law. After this, I spent one year working as a Research Consultant for an Enviro-Chemical Engineering Lab at Argonne National Laboratory. Iíve learned that scientific findings are meaningless unless they are shared with and effectively involve members of the public. I follow this same ideology in my current position as a Research Assistant under Dr. Andrea Feldpausch-Parker and Dr. Valerie Luzadis. My thesis centers around the CREEQ (Citizen Recreational Evaluation of Environmental Quality) citizen-science initiative, through a collaboration with the NYSDEC. I will aid in the development of sample collection protocols and a web survey that will measure public perceptions of water quality and recreational usability of streams in Central New York. The goal of this project is to test the effectiveness of utilizing citizen-science reported data to guide stream water-quality monitoring efforts.

Interests
Hiking, hand embroidery, yoga.

Graduate Research Topic
My current research pursuits are transdisciplinary and include promoting the broad participation of stakeholders in environmental decision making. I am particularly interested in human impacts to coastal systems with a focus on habitat restoration and migratory sea-run fish conservation. With my scholarship, I aim to help inform and support watershed management actions that link measures of human well-being and fisheries.
