I am a master’s student in Ecology, supervised by Tal Avgar. My research focuses on the drivers of mule deer migration in Central Utah, using emerging technology to monitor both population and individual level movement patterns. Specifically, I am investigating if mule deer track vegetation green-up along their spring migration routes, and whether populations are subject to density dependence due to intraspecies competition for nutritional resources.
I am originally from Northern Ontario, Canada. Before moving to Utah, I obtained my BS in Wildlife Biology & Conservation from the University of Guelph. When I’m not in the lab or field, I spend my time rock climbing, skiing, and running.
Anticipated graduation: December 2020
