I am about to graduate with my Master’s in Environmental Management from the Nicholas School at Duke University. I have studied the field of environmental science intensively throughout my academic career. My main priority is wildlife conservation and the preservation of biodiversity, a passion I have felt for so long that I believe I am meant to dedicate my life to these issues. Even as a young child, I could constantly be found sitting up in a tree, waxing poetic about the beauty and intricacy of all the life around me. Here at Duke, I have concentrated in ecosystem science and conservation– expanding my knowledge in the natural sciences and the development of functional and realistic conservation programs. I have also obtained a certificate in geographic information systems (GIS), developing my skills in applying geospatial analysis to real-world conservation issues. This coming summer, I am hoping that my passion, skills, and hard work will be able to aid APW in their crucial work on human- lion conflict mitigation.
