Welcome to my website! I am a NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) with Drs. Robert Voss, John Flynn, and Sharlene Santana (of the University of Washington).
I recently finished my PhD in the Mehta Lab at UC Santa Cruz (UCSC). My dissertation examines the processes that contribute to the phenotypic and ecological variation found across both macroevolutionary and microevolutionary scales. I was also the graduate mentor for the Small Mammal Undergraduate Research in the Forest (SMURF) program to train undergraduates in field methods with small mammals.
I previously studied the relationship between diverse morphologies and burrowing behaviors in polychaete worms with Dr. Greg Rouse and Dr. Kelly Dorgan at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego (UCSD) where I also received my Bachelor of Science in Environmental Systems.
