Welcome to my personal website! I’m currently a PhD candidate working in Dr. Lauren Riters’ lab at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I have broad research interests in the neuroendocrine basis of social behaviors.

My thesis research examines the effects of limited environmental resources (such as breeding territory) on sexually- and agonistically-motivated behaviors through neurochemical systems conserved across vertebrate species. Read more about my research here.

On this website, you can also find more information about me, and see some of my experiences in teaching and outreach.

Please feel free to reach out if we share interests or if you have any questions!
