OSU ’21, B.S. in Data Analytics specializing in Social Science Analytics, Minor in Comparative Studies, Honors Research Distinction

I am a recent graduate and research assistant applying computationally-intensive statistical methods and machine learning to model biodiversity in mosaic swidden systems in the rainforests of southern Belize. Since starting with the Human Complexity Lab in 2020, I have had the privilege of exploring cutting-edge, data-driven approaches to anthropological questions. I have grown as a transdisciplinary researcher thanks to the the complex, dynamic nature of the teamwork in our lab. In my free time, I enjoy many hobbies including rock climbing, astrophotography,  and glassblowing.
