My graduate studies focus on assessing the value of the international exchange program for undergraduate students funded by this NSF project. My work helps to establish an assessment tool that will evaluate the effectiveness of international exchange programs and how they can be improved.

Academic Background:

  • BS (’06), Brigham Young University, in Physiology and Developmental Biology
  • MS in Integrative Biology, Brigham Young University (’06–present)

  • Biography:

    I grew up in northern California enjoying the outdoors. I have continued to foster this passion through my education by studying biology as both an undergraduate and graduate student. After graduate school I plan to teach biology and hopefully encourage others to discover a similar excitement for the outdoors.
