Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate at Tulane University in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department where I study the microscopic symbionts of trees (read more about my research here).

My passion for bringing science and environmental news to the public arose during my internship for mongabay.org. I have since written over 50 “pop-science” articles for mongabay.org, and other outlets.

As both a graduate student and a writer, I have funded my work through grants and fellowships and discovered that I have a knack and for writing and editing grants.  Let’s collaborate!

After completing my Ph.D., I plan to work full-time as a science communicator and grant writer.  Until then, you can find me in New Orleans writing my dissertation, playing my washboard, and collaboratively creating with this vibrant community.
