About me

I am a first-generation college student and a proud Latina in STEM! I am currently a doctoral candidate in the Biological Education PhD program at the University of Northern Colorado. I am interested in urban ecology, animal behavior, how geographic variation drives behavioral patterns, creating inclusive ecosystems in the classroom, and inquiry-based education. My current research investigates the effects of urban noise, light, and landscape on bird song, behavior, and reproductive output of American Robins. Check out my research page for more info!
