I graduated with my M.S. in June of 2013 from Wright State University in Dayton, OH. My previous research focused on the impacts of white-tailed deer herbivory on forest understory plant communities in Northern Wisconsin. I'm now in the working on The-Deer Forest Study as a graduate student pursuing a PhD in Wildlife with Duane Diefenbach as my advisor. I'm excited about the DFS and its potential to answer much needed questions about the influences of other factors (in combination with deer browsing) on forest vegetation.
