I am an undergraduate in the Butman Lab here at the University of Washington studying Environmental Science & Terrestrial Resource Management as well as Biology. Over the past four years I have loved studying our native Pacific Northwest ecosystems and learning about research techniques.

The focus of my work in the Butman Lab is on urban streams and how they are an integral part of our ever-changing landscape. I hope that my project will lay the groundwork for future, more long-term studies on urban systems.As an aspiring scientist and educator I am excited to see where my next steps will take me. In my free time I love to hike, run, and craft!
