Noelle received her B.S. (2015) and M.S. (2017) in Animal Sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her Master's research evaluated the effects of white-tailed deer removal on deer habitat use and spatial clustering. At MSU, her Ph.D. research focuses on identifying cost-effective management strategies for minimizing direct and indirect transmission of chronic wasting disease in Michigan's free-ranging white-tailed deer. Noelle's research interests are in wildlife conservation and management and infectious disease ecology.
