I am a graduate of the College of William and Mary with a B.S. in Psychology and Biology minor. I am currently in my second year of graduate study at Canisius College’s Anthrozoology M.S. program. My coursework includes classes in animal welfare, conservation, public policy, and humane education.
Put simply, my research interests lie at the intersection of the social and biological sciences, especially in terms of interactions between human and nonhuman animals. I am especially interested in bird conservation and behavior in human altered landscapes. My thesis work focuses on interactions between black vultures and cattle farmers in Virginia.
