I am a research scientist at EcoHealth Alliance, where I study pathogen spillover from bats, rodents, and primates to humans in Southeast Asia. Previously I was a postdoctoral associate at the Odum School of Ecology (University of Georgia), working with Dr. John Drake. I earned my Ph.D. from UGA in 2019, advised by Dr. Sonia Altizer. My dissertation explored the effects of urban landscapes on wildlife behavior, health, and disease, with a focus on flying foxes (fruit bats) in Australia. I previously earned a B.S. intensive in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from Yale University.
