Bio: 

Describe your work at NCEAS.
I work on the Ocean Health Index, which measures how well the ocean is able to provide the resources we rely on.

What's your favorite thing about NCEAS?
I love working with everyone at NCEAS.

What was an "a-ha" moment or experience that made you want to do work in ecology, science and/or conservation?
I'm a statistician, and I'm obsessed with statistics because they can help us see past our biases to better understand the world.

If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?
I would like to be a mermaid.

What's your favorite thing to do outside of work?
I like hanging out with family and friends (especially when paired with good food and beverages).
