Evolution and Ecology
I am a PhD candidate in the Population Biology Graduate Group. I received a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Occidental College. After college, I conducted research at the La Selva Biological Station in Costa Rica and then as a molecular laboratory technician at the California Academy of Sciences. In the Eisen lab, I study the microbiota associated with the skin of the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog (Rana sierrae) and the interactions between these communities and the pathogenic chytrid fungus, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd).
