Hobbies: My hobbies include travel; traveling to new places, as well as playing games with and enjoying the company of family and friends.
Research: I have two active lines of research. First, I am interested in understanding how mammal communities respond to human-induced changes to the environment. Second, I look at issues of women and people of color in the sciences, and aim to inform practices to create a more inclusive scientific community.
Personal Life: My family consists of my spouse (Brian), and my recently born son (Jordi). An interesting fact about me is that my friends can rarely beat me at a game of Scrabble or Boggle: challenge issued!
