Hi Rocky! My name is Evaline, and I'm a senior from the perpetually sunny Sunnyvale, California. As an EEB major, I spent my junior spring studying in Panama, which translates to hiking in tropical rain forests, exploring bat caves, snorkeling in coral reefs, and unearthing ancient ceramic shards. Panama was an incredible adventure, and I returned to Princeton with confidence in my field work and research skills and some of the best friends I've made at Princeton thus far. For my thesis, I'm studying how forest fragments impact biodiversity and consequently the transmission of disease in Madagascar. I'm interested in disease ecology, global mental health, and social justice. On campus, I'm an OA leader, an EMT with the Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad, and a member of the women's Ultimate Frisbee team. You can find me writing in my journal, slacklining, and running my favorite trails. I'd love to talk to you about anything (academics, campus life, philosophical life questions, bad puns, etc.) so let's start up a conversation!
