I am a Wildlife Ecologist and Research Coordinator interested in creating innovative interdisciplinary ways to address management and conservation-related concerns in working landscapes with novel insights and tools. Currently, there is still a large disconnect between wildlife management and disciplines such as behavioral ecology, physiology, and human dimensions. These fields should not be thought of as mutually exclusive, as each can provide unique information on the fitness of a population. I believe that the integration of different biological and ecological disciplines can allow for more progressive and effective wildlife management and conservation. Additionally, in our current society, science and wildlife management struggle to keep up with the public on fast-paced digital platforms. This gap in communication can often lead to misinformation, potentially overshadowing positive research, thus creating a greater disconnect between science and the public. Research is less impactful and effective if the public and stakeholders do not know it exists, how to use it, or why it is important. I am very passionate about mending this gap by fostering a creative communication platform to facilitate a seamless knowledge transfer between researchers and the public.
