Background

I was born in St. Petersberg, Russia, but immigrated to the United States because my dad received a postdoctrate position at the University of Toledo. Using his work in astrophysics to travel, my dad taught me about science and introduced me to biodiversity around the world. During my undergraduate career, I worked in a herpetology husbandry lab, which fostered my compassion for vulnerable species, but my work in other environmental laboratories sparked my interest in ecological studies. Altogether, I am hooked on ecology research that aids conservation efforts for a variety of taxa.

My undergraduate honors thesis investigated the tradeoffs of arthropod interaction with toxic algal blooms on the beaches of Lake Erie. This novel angle revealed that harmful algal blooms can cause previously unseen ripples in arthropod biodiversity and abundance on unproductive shores. With the Nebraska Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, I will expand my research interests into avian ecology.

Research

Broadly, I am interested in interactions among species, between species and human influences, and how those interactions shape the evolution, behavior, and life history of those species. Particularly, I want to study how these interactions change across space (and time) and how that spatial knowledge can help adapt management to the needs of the species.
