I was born and raised in South Florida, but I'm learning to love the dry beauty of the California Ecosystems that are now my home. Shocked by how fast my time at Stanford has gone, I am now a senior majoring in Biology with a concentration in Ecology and Evolution, and researching ant interactions in the Bay Area. I'm really excited to see where SSS goes this year and hope we can be impactful on Stanford's campus and beyond.
