I’m a data scientist for the WSU Decision Aid System. I organize and synthesize pest and climate data and use R to translate Integrated Pest Management (IPM) research into useful tools for decision makers in Washington State agriculture. I also develop new decision aid models and expand our IPM programs through research.

In addition to this work I also enjoy running workshops and giving instructional talks about reproducible research and R.

Previously I was a data manager for the Center for Environmental Research, Education and Outreach (CEREO) and research assistant for the Hampton Lab at WSU. In those roles I worked on projects spanning the fields of limnology, ecology, entomology, and agriculture. I have a BA/BS in ecology and agriculture from The Evergreen State College and a MS in forestry sciences from California Polytechnic State University.
