Cat Sun

bears, management, and people, oh My!

study the spatial patterns and genetic diversity of wildlife populations

I am from suburban Delaware, where I grew up playing in the backyard and digging in the garden. I kept crickets as pets and walked along train tracks on the Susquehanna River with my dad, collecting rocks, feathers, and other animal bits.

I attended the University of Delaware and in 2010 obtained my Bachelors of Science in Biology with a Concentration in Ecology and Organismal Biology. In 2014, I received my MS in Natural Resources from Cornell University.

Update: I recently adopted a second cat, named Dyson. Hoover and Dyson are adjusting to a 3-Cat household.
