Hello! I'm the WILDLABS intern based at World Wildlife Fund in Washington, DC. In my role here, I focus mainly on leading the Virtual Meetup Series and centralizing resources for the community. I also work part-time with the TRAFFIC team assessing illegal wildlife trade in the US.
I graduated from Scripps College in 2018 with a degree in organismal biology. Most of my work experience thus far has been wildlife-based field research, studying large mammal ecology and community-based conservation in Tanzania, and puma conservation at home in Santa Cruz, California. For my senior thesis, I conducted an independent project using deep neural network models to automate species recognition in camera trap photos. During this project, WILDLABS was exactly the community I needed (but hadn't found yet!), so I am eager to help you all utilize it as best as possible.
You can get in touch by sending me a private message here on WILDLABS.NET, or emailing me at [email protected].
