I fell in love with biology after I fell in love with kayaking on the ocean... and was wowed by orcas, the amazing world of the intertidal, and the birds that live around the sea. My educational path took me from SRJC to UC Berkeley, where I was introduced to the formal study of animal behavior. Although I focused on marine biology during my undergrad years, I was wooed to Argentina to study the social environment of a little subterranean rodent, the colonial tuco-tuco, for my graduate research.

I have come full circle now, with the opportunity to teach biology at SRJC, where it all began, and I hope to excite the students in my class with the amazing-ness of the natural world. It doesn't get any better than the study of life!

Professional Areas of Interest: 

Evolutionary Biology/Behavioral Ecology/Animal Behavior with an emphasis on social behavior in animals, Hormones and Behavior, South American Rodents, Marine Biology/Marine Mammals
