Jane received her undergraduate degrees in biology and French literature and language from

University of Virginia. While working at a foundation promoting wildlife conservation in the

Intermountain West, Jane became involved in applied ecology and restoration ecology projects in Great

Basin sagebrush and woodland systems. She returned to the University of Reno, Nevada to complete her

MS degree in landscape and forest ecology in the Great Basin Landscape Ecology Lab. After working as a

nongame biologist for a state wildlife agency, she started a Ph.D. program in September 2022, working

with Dr. Rebecca Terry’s lab in the Department of Integrative Biology and Dr. Clint Epps’ lab in the

Department of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Sciences at Oregon State University. Her current

research focuses on advancing biodiversity conservation in arid systems, particularly in the Great Basin.
