When I was young, my family used to take road trips down the west coast of North America. I would look through the car window and watch spectacular landscapes pass by. During these trips, my sense of awe inspired in me a curiosity about the natural world. This curiosity has led me to the University of British Columbia, where I study Conservation of Natural Resources.
I am particularly interested in the interrelationship of people, societies, and nature. I believe that through understanding these relationships, we can create novel solutions to big global problems such as climate change. I am excited to be working with the Tree Ring Lab because it provides me an opportunity to learn how conservation research is done in a hands-on way, while also taking me into the beautiful forests of BC. When I am not working, you can often find me riding my bike, rock climbing, or cooking something delicious.
