About

I am an evolutionary biologist who focuses on questions of adaptation in the sea. My research interests generally relate to molecular evolution (population genetics and phylogenetics), especially in the context of marine ecology. I’m inordinately fond of marine invertebrates, especially echinoderms.

I am currently a postdoctoral associate in the lab of Dr. Nina Therkildsen at Cornell University. I was previously a postdoctoral researcher with Dr. Katie Lotterhos at Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center, and I graduated with my Ph.D. from the lab of Dr. Floyd Reed at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, with a specialization in Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation Biology. My dissertation work focused on gene and genome evolution in the pan-tropical sea urchin genus Tripneustes.
