Welcome! I'm an integrative evolutionary biologist studying the evolution of complex traits. I combine theory and techniques from evolutionary genomics and physiology to determine how genetic architecture, organismal biology, and phenotypic plasticity interact and lead to differences in adaptive evolution.
Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Utah State University, working with Zach Gompert. I completed my PhD in 2021 at UC Berkeley with Michael Nachman. Before that, I received my Mater's with Matt Andrews at the University of Minnesota.
Check back soon for more information about my research -- in the mean time, please see my google scholar profile or my CV for more information. And don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to get in touch!
