Stephanie grew up in Los Angeles with an appreciation of the beauty in nature. In the spring evenings, she can be found in ponds and streams, collecting data on her research on how traffic noise can affect frog mating behavior. Her research interest involves the relationships between humans, nature, and how unseen pollution like anthropogenic noise can affect wildlife. Currently, she is pursuing her Master of Science in Biology at California State University, Northridge. At the university, she teaches an introductory lab course to biology majors. She enjoys mentoring students and hopes that her work and presence in conservation biology will inspire girls and people of color to become scientists.
