 I am going into my 3rd year at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and am studying Conservation Biology. Over the summer, I worked on the Johnson Lab's Field Crew as an REU student surveying ponds, collecting specimens, and looking for parasites. I hope to use the knowledge of freshwater ecology I gained with the Johnson Lab in my future plans of working with a conservation based non-profit or an organization that works to restore natural systems, especially with a focus on wetlands and freshwater. I am automatically in love with anything and everything related to reptiles and amphibians and look forward to researching them in my future studies.
