I am an undergraduate student at Duke University graduating in May 2018 with a B.S. in Marine Biology and certificates in Marine Science Conservation Policy and Markets & Management Studies. My current research is focused on river otters living in a marine/ocean environments and how species range expansion may affect ecology. I am also looking at prey species and overall range distributions. I am primarily interested in the ecological impacts of marine megafauna and how species distributions can influence food webs, economics, and human communities.
