I am a senior Ecology and Evolutionary Biology major in the college of Arts and Sciences at Cornell. I am really interested in the way natural processes such as evolution work to shape the world around us. I am also interested in the practical applications of scientific research. Outside of classes at CU, I have taught classes for Cornell Outdoor Education (COE) and I have led trips for Wilderness Reflections, a pre-orientation program for incoming students. I like to do pretty much anything outdoors, especially to run, climb rocks, bike, hike, and swim. When I'm not too busy with school and being outside, I love to read, draw, experiment while cooking, and sleep a lot. I grew up in Connecticut with my parents, my younger sister, and pet cats.
