I am an incoming PhD student to Alan KnappÃ¢??s lab. I originally hail from southern Texas and received my BS in Environmental Science from Oklahoma State University. In December 2013, I completed my MS in Agronomy at the University of Wyoming researching management techniques for cheatgrass in the Thunder Basin Grassland and working with other weeds and invasive species across the state. My interests lie in human impacts and uses of grassland ecosystems especially invasive species. I am thrilled to move to a warmer climate and explore the outdoors.
