I'm a disease ecologist interested in infectious disease emergence and spillover from wildlife to humans (and vice versa) as a result of human-induced climate and landscape alterations. I completed my PhD in May 2020 at the University of Rhode Island where I researched tick-borne disease socioecology. Currently, I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Smith lab at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign College of Veterinary Medicine where I am working on species distribution models of ticks and tickborne disease in Central Illinois.
