After graduating, I worked for 6 months at Archbold Biological Station in Lake Placid, Florida collecting data on endangered plants and conducting an independent project on a local invasive grass. I also worked for 5 months as a technician at Washington University looking at the effects of climate change and habitat fragmentation on changes in pollinator behavior. I will be entering a PhD program at the University of Minnesota in the fall and will study the population dynamics of invasive species. The Environmental Studies major helped me discover my love for ecology and science in general. Classes like Experimental Ecology lab and Population Ecology gave me a wide breadth of knowledge across the field and an advantage for competitive internships and grad school.
