#STAYSTRONG & SQUIRRELY
Sadly, the spread of the COVID-19 has disrupted our lives in many ways, including the cancellation of this year's Suds and Science, a public outreach event hosted at a local brewery by the University of Florida's Wildlife Graduate Student Association. Instead, I'm sharing some of my outreach materials developed for this event here (above)!
ABOUT THE SCIENTIST
I am currently a Ph.D. student in Dr. Bob McCleery's lab at the University of Florida and co-advised by Dr. Mike Conner at the Joseph W. Jones Ecological Research Center in GA. In 2015, I finished my Master's degree with Dr. Monica Turner’s Ecosystem and Landscape Ecology Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Being in graduate school keeps me busy, but I do have other interests! For the ~3 years before starting graduate school, I worked as a biologist (mostly in California) on a variety of projects with the federal government, UC-Berkeley, and other organizations (see Experience). I have been conducting biological field work since summer 2007, when I was an undergraduate student in Dr. Nick Haddad’s lab at North Carolina State University in my home state.
