I am an environmental science major from Long Island, New York. In high school, I worked as a zookeeper and research assistant at RWPZoo. I have worked in my classes to complete research on topics ranging from street tree health, water quality post-breach from Hurrican Sandy in Jamaica Bay, and water quality on dry vs. rainy days at combined sewer outlets. Currently, I am interning at NYC Audubon where I completed, and am in the process of publishing, a persistence study on bird collisions in Bryant Part. As a presidential honors scholar, I am working on independent research on urban green spaces in New York City, Berlin, and Stockholm, which aims analyze their functionality and produce a publicly accessible eco-map. In the future, I hope to achieve a PhD in conservation ecology. Aside from science, I enjoy drawing, exploring the outdoors, and competing in martial arts.
