I am a graduate student at the Yale School of Forestry, and the leader of the school’s Fire Ecology and Management student interest group (Fire SIG). I organize fire-related events on campus and at our school forests, including: prescribed burns at the Yale Myers Forest, basic firefighting courses for students interested in wildland firefighting operations, the creation of a ‘fire curriculum’, and educational events on the ecological benefits of fire for people in the community.

My master’s research involves quantifying the effects of different management practices on pitch pine regeneration across the Northeast.
