Computational Ecology, Ecoinformatics, and Open Science

About Me

I am a newly fledged Ph.D. out of the Weecology lab group.  I'm currently figuring out how to be a working computational ecologist with a chronic illness. 

Elita Baldridge

When not doing science, I'm taking care of two Nubian dairy goats, a small flock of Cochin chickens, and a hive of bees, assisted by my brilliant dog, who keeps an eye on me and makes sure I behave.
