Taylor is an Arnhold Environmental Graduate Fellow with emLab working on assessing the impacts and future directions of human - wildlife interactions and conflict. This work will ultimately serve to inform conservation planning efforts in the face of climate and land use change. Prior to the Arnhold Fellowship, Taylor worked with Conservation International performing climate and land use vulnerability assessments for conservation sites, and developed interactive web applications for planners and scientists to explore irrecoverable carbon and biodiversity metrics for sites of interest. Taylor graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Barbara, and is currently in her second year of the Master of Environmental Science and Management program at the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management. In her free time Taylor enjoys hiking, climbing, baking, teaching yoga classes, and all things crafty.
